Sorry I Was Miles Away unfolded through performing solitary acts and creating sculptural forms that explore the paradigms of photography. Often involving carefully composed performances and spontaneous feats of balance, the project disrupts the fabric of the everyday to create short narratives that lie on the boundaries of fact and fiction. Each image foregrounds notions of temporality, with an acute focus on aspects of human finitude. The images may appear ridiculous or even pointless, but their aim is to provoke questions about our relationship with everyday life. For, once the log falls, the cards collapse and the wet footprints disappear, things will continue, undisturbed by the set-up’s temporary presence.
