Our culture has been described as that of a throwaway one, where we chuck things out nearly as soon as we buy it. Buying something, using ir for a short while, throwing it away, buying something... A never ending circle. Perhaps habits we cannot get out of, or try not to. Things building up in our houses, in bins, in landfills, becoming a burden. We try filling our lives with what we think satisfies us, only to leave us more empty, wanting more and more. In my photographs I represent the building up process, and the more objects that pile on, the more hunched my model becomes. The photos will be presented in a carousel of a slide projector so once we have seen the process, it is repeated again and again, reflecting our culture.
