Inka Dinka Doo - Jimmy Durante
I am observing mannerisms and dress, how the habits of one individual can resonate with another and form strong visual memories. It’ is remembering their being rather than a face, accent or laugh.
Some final images from this project. I created a life size sculpture of my mother’s body from a mixture of bin bags and quilt padding, sourcing an outfit I could picture her wearing. Thinking about the way she carries herself, sits, and lays; the shapes that her body made when she would sit on the end of my bed and talk or when she would fall asleep in front of the T.V.
I would consider this project still very much a work in progress. I would like to delve deeper into this and take more photos in a variation of different clothes.
notetoself: never use a blog as reflective journal again do you hear me
