124. Robyn Selem - The Walls are Closing in on Me - Photography (Print)
21" x 30"
This work is one of five in a body of work that I produced during a very frustrating and depressing time of my life when attempting to return to the workforce. After numerous months of being knocked back and knocked down, I began to feel claustrophobic within my own home. In response, I turned my third bedroom into a makeshift studio, photographing the manikin and other household objects. I became fascinated by the anonymity that these objects portrayed. To resolve the work, the in-camera shots are then composed digitally, turning it into an animated narrative.
