Static Transmutation

Cohabitation inside a vessel traveling at 50 miles per hour headed in the direction intended for transport of strangers. Gentle brush of shoulder against shoulder. Eye contact challenged. Enclosed in a capsule, forced to share routine.

To transmute means to change or alter in form, appearance, or nature. A static transmutation would be the equilibrium experienced between people fixed in a tight spot traveling at a specified speed, thereby achieving a common ground.

The following work contains images expressing the parallelism of our lives and the need to recognize each other in the world we share. Anonymity is erased as strangers unknowingly mingle.

I purposely and strategically placed myself in every frame.
