My “Traffic” series came about after several significant changes in my life that pushed me to look at the world with a different perspective. This work explores the idea of survival in society and as an individual, personal identity, and communication. Though at first glance they appear to be based on the flow of traffic, my focus is on the space that exists between the objects and being present in the moment. My goal in omitting any indications of surroundings is to allow the viewer to draw on their own individual experiences and to evoke conversations in personal experiences with their surrounding environment.
