In this body of work, I am photographing static, mundane objects from the perspective of looking down. I layer the images, adding additional translucent film to further enhance the illusion of space. Circles represent the eternal whole and in every culture are an archetypical form representing the sun, the earth, the moon, and the universe.  The irony of elevating these ordinary objects into the realm of celestial bodies is not inconsequential. In addition, the circular form, with neither a beginning nor end, implies the idea of movement, and symbolizes the cycle of time and perpetual motion.  The elements of these pieces have a certain familiarity, but the composition transcends the importance of their identification.
