I began with the idea of a “bubble” but felt that word had too many silly connotations tied to it. I wanted something darker. Something more difficult to deal with. I then reduced or simplified my definition of “bubble” into being a thin semipermeable layer that divides space… In my studio a large thin plastic sheet was hung from wall to wall and I began making photographs of myself coming through. In this image I pushed a little too hard and the plastic began to fall down, but the contrast of the wrinkles along with my body posture really struck me as something worth keeping.
