Engaging Ethnography attempts to address the everyday with a more fluid understanding of representation. By allowing the tacit and the intuitive to be components of anthropological research, my intent as artist-ethnographer is to communicate the affective and aesthetic nature of the everyday through more corporeal and visually explorative means.
This attempt to visualize the presence of the everyday has come in the form of audiovisual installations. Through projecting small-scale videos onto objects and spaces, Engaging Ethnography offers new (yet familiar) views of the everyday. I want to see how ethnographic consideration and artist engagement can craft a depiction of the everyday that speaks to its embodied, aesthetic and expressive qualities. Ultimately, these works are an attempt to convey a more experiential and perceptive form of communication; the goal being to highlight those understood or implied, yet not stated understandings that contribute to our awareness of the everyday.
