Lump Projects

Zumpfe_Lump Projects_1

Lump Projects engages with acts of moving through locations of virtual and physical space, akin to acts of walking where the body gathers and is generated in a field of material, social relations, and constraints. This installation is composed of a corridor that contains all of the photographs in the interior. The sculptural lumps that are the basis of online conversations are present in the exterior space. There is light from video projections fading in and out that capture the contour of the lump on the yellow exterior surface of the corridor.

The photographs produced for Lump Projects stem from conversations that were fostered with strangers  online, an exercise of exchange and vulnerability between strangers. Conversations were fostered with individuals that engage with aspects of consent, trust, decision-making, improvisation, and play. Drawing directly from the content of these conversations, the exhibition space and the performative acts are considered and re-visioned through enacting individualized performative documentary photographs and an exhibition installation. Each participating individual was sent back an image that was realization of the conversation.

Sites of online social interactions were traversed to question how the excessive spatiality of the Internet can become reinscribed back onto material, the body, space, and photographic documentation.
