Managing the Weight of Our Body

In Managing the Weight of Our Body, I explore the limitations of mental and physical experience and the way technology is used to manage those limitations. The camera and the smartphone, like the plane, become prosthetics of my experience - they give me the sense that I can secure and locate myself in the context of my immediate and greater surroundings.

 

As I photograph planes and accumulate information about them through a flight tracking application, I think of myself as a point in a 21st-century constellation - a constellation that both orients and disorients me as I imagine myself in relation to what is distant.
