'Building the Time Machine' is rooted in nostalgia, grief, and a longing for the past. More than anything, I wish I could travel back in time. The past is an inaccessible dimension that eats up our entire lives, everyone we have met, everything we have done, and everywhere we have been. Through my art, I wish to conquer the force of time, even if it is all pretend.My process of journeying into the past involves shooting expired rolls of film in areas I associate strongly with the years they expired in, combined with material I have collected from that period. My photography launches myself back in time: back to where I’ve been and the person I was.I use my practice to process deeply personal events in my life that I struggle to speak about, choosing to analyse and express my feelings about them through my art instead. The reasoning behind my work is simple: I miss my Mom and I would do anything to travel back in time, to before she got sick, and stay there forever. This is as close as I can get.
