An archive of double images.
In Kenneth Koch's poem "One Train May Hide Another", he offers the reader a kind of guide for dealing with the slippery nature of images and words. This ongoing collection of orignial, found, and manipulated images owes much to a particular line in the poem reffering to "These hidden doubles or, sometimes, likenesses."
Most of the images have their own counterparts and can be positioned according to the dimensions of the exhibition space. Sometimes, as in the case of the “Double Self-Portrait,” the images should be situated across the room from one another. The dialogue created in the act of separating the images creates a charge and means to move viewers through a space. I intend these images to be more confusing than direct, complicating their subject. Most often, images are used to give a more stable sense of something; this is problematic because most images are an oversimplification of their subject.
