The Dust Between
This is a series examining the spaces in which political bodies function, and the ways in which they assert authority through the physical structures they impart. It is also a poetic observation on the ephemerality of these structures’ significance; a city can house one thousand statues dedicated to the past and current governments. At some point in time, each of these monuments will become vestiges of a former way of living, eternal ghosts that are neither forgotten, nor revered as they once were. Beginning with Plato’s Cave allegory, this work aims to highlight the disjuncture between physical realities and constructed realities, the latter of which tend to govern the former.
