My Lover in Unequal Parts: A Found Photo Project

My Lover in Unequal Parts comprises found internet imagery from three war zones. I constructed this work in July of 2006, keeping in mind representations of civilian populations. In the piece, a civilian bystander narrates a hopscotch traversal of Iraq, Palestine, and Lebanon in search of a lost lover. In mystical fashion, and through a series of interactions with people, animals, and objects, the lover is revealed through all and one, everything and cipher, with language itself as mediating power. A site-specific webwork which responds to the proximity of war in Lebanon, Iraq, and Gaza, and which is balanced along the narrative thread of a hopeful search for a lost lover.
