Plucked is an investigation into the duality of the home, urban alienation, social segregation and human relationships. This duality of the home extends further, adding layers to the series, incorporating the ethics of both social documentary and staged photography, as well as the possible cognitive dissonant experience of the viewer. This dissonance was built around notions of ambiguity and the uncanny. (from the publisher)
Plucked has the feeling of this winter and these ghosts and yet the whole of it also feels as though perhaps there is a desire to bath its blood promise in the lacrimal tears of former victories. I am reminded of many things and nothing all at once. My references are blinded, left drawing themselves down my cheek and into that same dish of milky tears that Bataille obsessed over with his eggs and his slaughterhouse revisions. There is nothing solid here. Everything here is a reflection, a hall of white mirrors. The walls set boundary to a house of bleached parrafin, the floors dampen the footsteps of children, and an extraordinary para-graphy illuminates an ocean of breeze that blows throughout.
