"Preoccupied Spirits" - March 2019
Dimensions: 88" x 44", 69" x 44"
Medium: Digital Photography
This project emphasizes on the idea of the mind detaching from physical activities due to a preoccupation. Take for example when a person is in the shower, their body is concentrated on the fact that they are cleaning themselves, but their mind can be preoccupied with organizing a to-do list of the day.
So, with these photographs, Lewis wants to create a visual simile with the mind and its separation from the body. The spirits aspect is depicted with the shadowy and foggy like the resemblance of the actual figure that is partially clear and in focus.
When taking these photographs, I set the camera to slow the shutter speed in order to capture their stance and movement.
