THE COUNTLESS MOMENTS THAT MAKE UP WAITING
I began making images during the first two years of the Covid-19 pandemic as my parents, brother, and I isolated together at my parents house in Stuart, Florida. Inside of this time which already seemed altered by the major life shifts brought by the pandemic, I was undergoing extensive medical testing and treatment for multiple chronic conditions. My days felt detached from linear time as I experienced extensive amounts of waiting, waiting for test results, for doctors appointments, for treatments to either work or not work, for community infection rates to drop.
I became drawn to markers of time passing, rituals that became new markers of time passing. Morning medication doses, haircuts, and the garden became a new calendar as I explored ways to create a new sense of progression in my life stripped away from the ways time seemed to progress prior to staying in isolation.
