Seeking inspiration in Cindy Sherman’s various characters, a single 80’s prom dress sparked the idea of a prom gone wrong. This series exhibits the string of emotions leading up to the dramatic decision to wash away the night. What happened that evening is up for interpretation; however, the piercing glare of the character should make her aversion to judgment well known.

Being trapped in a house with an observable time stamp has allowed me to explore the possibilities of a different era. Becoming comfortable with my new semi-permanent surroundings, I have started to experiment with different avenues of self-portraiture.
