Will You Wipe Away Your Dreams?

/Photography Experiment, 2024

At my corporate job, where I have been working for a while, I used to talk to myself in the bathroom in front of the mirror. I tried to convince myself that it wasn't that bad, that at least this job gave me a sense of certainty in this utterly uncertain world. Yet, my soul was feeling less and less alive.

Using one of the least glamorous materials (a.k.a. toilet paper from the office bathroom), I let my fears, doubts, and anger rest, written and captured, losing their power over me.

By inverting the images, I reflect on my own experience of feeling inverted every day when showing up in a place that felt wrong.
