Dwell, which documents my cancer-to-remission journey, started as an accident: a tiny Polaroid Spectra F101 “motion blur” filter placed over the lens, the camera turned the wrong way. Half there, half disappearing, teetering between the solidity of the frame, and the imagination. Integral film is unstable in nature. Over time, the physical photos will color shift or deteriorate, representing an altered version of “me,” much like cancer had altered my appearance and life. Dwell represents my imagination as I sought ways to accept mortality. The project also became validation of my existence, leaving artifacts by which to remember me.
