Nightstand
10 x 14 inches
C-print
2009-2011

In 2009, I got into the habit of taking daily photographs of my nightstand. This activity resulted in a series of still lifes tracking the accumulation of objects—chance elements of daily life—in a private realm. "Nightstand" shows a grid of 10 photos pulled from this collection, paired off in rows of two. Each side-by-side pair represents a small time gap, pictures taken within a week of each other. The photos are ordered chronologically—left to right, top to bottom—dates ranging from 2009-11.
