BEDROOM SET: PEEP SHOW

For my project, I visited different artists' bedroom spaces and photographed their decorations. With the photographs I created what I would like to call a Bedroom Set: A printed blanket, a printed pillowcase, and a book comprised of the best photographs that came out of the project. The blanket, pillowcase, and book cover are all printed with the same image, hence the 'set.'

The following statement is taken from the introduction to the book:

Peep Show documents the interiors of four separate bedroom spaces, the inhabitants of which are practicing artists in their early twenties, all living in Providence, Rhode Island. I chose these four rooms for their distinct décor; the way that the occupants adorn the walls and surfaces of their quarters formulates and exhibits an organic, personalized aesthetic. This practice draws evident similarities to the practice of art making, but in the context of these rather private spaces, there exists no specific intended audience. Rather, the decoration functions predominately as a personal display, an opinionated refutal of the stark wall. Taking these compositions out of context repositions them as exposed, ad hoc installations, offering insight into the quotidian viewpoint of the inhabitants. What is revealed are the remnants of consumption, living habits, small whims of interest, impulsive musings, and collected junk, in each case coalescing to generate an idiom of self expression. The following photographs illustrate an interpretive selection of these techniques.
