This monograph is about looking and about re-staging. It’s about looking at something after seeing it, and looking again before altering it. It’s about re-staging or re-making as a particular quality of obsession. I am interested not in simply re-staging a duplicate, but rather a sort of moiré re-making, one with moments of alignment and misalignment.
Sometimes obsessions don’t end well, but more often it’s that we don’t realize their impact until much later. Through this work, I arrive at a deeper understanding of how all things possess the ability and vulnerability to be unmade and remade.
