The Armory

The balance and conflict of work and life have been ongoing subjects of exploration in my work. My most recent workspace series, The Armory, documents the ever-changing sets of the pornography company to investigate a sort of life within the structure of work. Private spaces are constructed for a public gaze, and work is veiled under the guise of personal life.
Devoid of people, the spaces allude to an activity, but leave the viewer to imagine the scene. Pornography, driven by demand, reflects an amalgamation of our desires. Yet its prevalence also changes real-world sexual habits creating a feedback loop of the fabricated becomes the real while the real becomes fabricated.
