Photo: Sarah Small Title: "The Delirium Constructions "
Description: The Delirium Constructions These images are from an ongoing body of work placing unlikely characters together in the same space. In this series, I explore the purest interaction I can find unhindered by environmental cues that could signify occupation, social class, or revealing context. While many of these scenarios are staged, the emotions that result -- uneasiness, curiosity, sensuality -- are spontaneously captured and authentically experienced. Though these moments may be disquieting, they are packaged in candy colors to disarm the viewer. I want to photograph the raw emotional underbelly of scenes both found and fabricated. Like an optical illusion, where the viewer shifts between opposing visual perceptions, my images reference emotional illusion, a rocking back and forth between projection and introspection, between thought and feeling, between darkness and hilarity. I imagine us all left unbalanced but not out of sync.
