Scans are non-confrontational photos. They require no accusations, no conversations, no awkward pauses of waiting for the world to be what the artist needs to see and capture to say; it is simply the collecting and storing of information manipulated by the artist. Everything shown is unintentionally personal, introduced to paint the narrative from subjective experience and curated to the interior headspace the maker find themselves trapped in. A diary is visualized through objects revealed and distorted. The spiritual is captured through movement and in the unreal.
Scans are spiritual. They collect artifacts of family lineage, honor and expectancies passed down, and freeze it in digital landscapes. They collect the intangible movements and gestures that seem so slight, yet define an entire image. They invite in perspective, and exclude with encoded insider's content, pushing and pulling and asking for faith from the audience to trust that the speaker knows something they do not.
Scans are speaking In Tongues to an audience, begging for compromise between spiritual expectancies and the reality that it is, in fact, a collection of noise on a screen.
