Using recent self-portrait imagery, I am building a narrative from two explored ideas: the act of taking off fashionable clothes and the introspection I experience in the bathroom. Using a playful fold out book binding, I incorporate historical and unconscious text and dialogue that cross boundaries of both the comical and the personally invasive. I lose that definition with the books pagination, and create a situation that undermines the way I perceive introspection.
