...Between... establishes situations that create discomforting dualities in which one is split between seeing and not seeing through the depiction of projected images onto abandoned interiors. I developed this series during my trip to Istanbul, Turkey. The projections were shot at night (sometimes in total darkness with the help of my flashlight), and as soon as an image is projected it's as if the space is being awakened: I let the architecture, angles, textures, lines, and scale inspire me. I see potential in things that are overlooked: For me, these interiors are scarred with history and random markings that bear testimony to latent and ghostly energies. Although initially I wanted to use the projector as physical material to explore notions of conflated Eastern/Western gaze and collapse time. Instead the images became became psychic spaces in which traces of the history unconsciously melt onto the fragile skeletons of the physical architecture.
