Artist statement: During a recent artist residency in Finland I carried around an object, a cheap plastic inflatable globe. Every day, I breathed into it, I photographed it. I found myself beginning to notice its response to the environments I was situating it in. It kept surprising me.
Toward the end of the residency it developed a puncture and it kept deflating. This was prophetic as previously I had been purposely not fully inflating it. Somewhere along our journey together I had been too rough with it. It reminded me that the way I treated it had had an effect on it.
