Lifted and Leaden Fifty 8" x 8" Digital Inkjet Prints
Lifted and Leaden addresses the rainy day when Donald Trump was inaugurated as the 45th president of the United States. Shortly after the inauguration, the popular news organization CNN published an interactive gigapixel, or super high-resolution, image of the event online. To create this series, I explored the gigapixel and digitally extracted certain individuals from the attending crowd. The resulting lonely figures echo my emotions surrounding that day.
