Haunts creatively reimagines what that term might mean in today's world through a series of seven images captured with a 35mm camera and hand-printed in the darkroom. These photographs attempt to capture the feeling of entering a room that feels as if someone has just left. The artist engages with questions of the unseen - an enduring theme for her work, paradoxically explored through the visual, photographic medium. She hopes to provoke questions such as, are ghosts real? What might our answers to that question mean for us as moderns? How does our world veil and unveil? What might we know of (un)hidden things? What implications might hauntings have for our imaginations of temporality? What fragmented, discarded, half-forgotten memories remain as undead, living things
“Some things go. Pass on. Some things just stay. I used to think it was my rememory. You know. Some things you forget. Other things you never do. But it's not. Places, places are still there. If a house burns down, it's gone, but the place—the picture of it—stays, and not just in my rememory, but out there, in the world. What I remember is a picture floating around out there outside my head. I mean, even if I don't think it, even if I die, the picture of what I did, or knew, or saw is still out there. Right in the place where it happened."
—Beloved (43), Toni Morrison
