IRONIC DETACHMENT | 2002 – 2004

This work is a continuation of ‘When I tell the truth, people think I am lying’. In the previous work I had utilized letterpress and a typewriter font to assist in the expression of the written idea. However the feedback that I received was that the work was very cold and sterile because of the typography, therefore I attempted to expand on the series by using my own handwriting in these pieces. 

I chose to visually incorporate the text and images in a graphic manner in order to attempt to express the interconnectedness of the concept and the visual elements of each idea.

Many of the images and text were originally intended for “When I tell the truth, people think I am lying” but were not cohesive to the book. Therefore I created this later work as a continuation of the book in order to feel that I have expressed the complete thoughts and ideas that I was unable to express in a single volume.

I had all of these thoughts and feeling about my life and life itself that I wanted to share, not in an arrogant way, but in a way that assisted me in feeling more connected to other people through the commonality of our fears, insecurities, and dreams.
