Collin Avery | Here nor There
Posted on Oktober 12, 2011 by Julia Schiller
“In the project entitled, “Here nor There” I am continuing to examine my interest with the intricacies and oddities of my immediate environment. As a child, I always remember being very keen to my surroundings and paying close attention to the quiet nuances often overlooked by others. Growing up I would avoid confrontation; oftentimes imagining I could disappear with a hope of avoiding my social awkwardness. As I matured, I realized that I thrived on being an outsider that lacked in social normalcy. I am an observer and my fear is confrontation. I do not consider this a negative attribute, although my friends and family alike would argue differently.
Hidden, silent, and often overlooked, I seek to create a delicate juxtaposition between the awkward interactions and subtle nuances in my life, confronting moments that I once let myself get lost in.”
