  • My Bed is a work by the British artist Tracey Emin. It was exhibited at the Tate Gallery in 1999 as one of the shortlisted works for the Turner Prize. It consisted of her bed with bedroom objects in an abject state, and gained much media attention.

I've noticed a recurring theme - that of reflection - in the photos I've made over the past two months. It has been the result of both conscious and subconscious choice - sometimes I'm simply fascinated by the juxtapositions reflections enable, while at other times I simply "feed the theme". Offhand I can think of two reasons why reflections interest me:

It's a play on self-reflection; I've been doing a lot of that, and I'm amused by the idea of self-reflection without my body in my photographs.
I take intellectual pleasure at being able to show more of a space without directly pointing my camera at it; a way implying a larger existence I think, which again ties back to self-reflection, and the direction it's taking me.

I was going for a subdued, empty feel, trying to emphasize dissonance and dissociation with my surroundings.

Pulling up to my motel room at 10:30PM after a hard day of work I opened the door to the cherry of my evening. The ambiance was thick with the beautiful sights and smells that greeted me. I pulled back the covers of the hastily made bed on its iron and plastic rollers to find the most appealing purple stained unwashed sheets. The bathroom sucked me in with its dirty towels and unemptied trash can. To this hour I can still faintly smell the slight aroma of formaldehyde on my shirt and pants.

What an appropriate end to a very special day....
