Artist Statement:

A series of seven self portraits made by Thea in the crescendo of her isolation experience. An experiment of loneliness, fearing the passage of time, seeking identity, and loving creativity.

I know why I originally made it, the idea - see what would happen if I made the same photos over a span of time of different days. And I know why in retrospect I made it - trying to make myself known, show people I exist. To combat time and it's forgetting and prove that subtlety matters.
