Abstract: I want to explore the possibility of art as a documentation of life which, in turn, presupposes life's impennanence. I set out to contemplate working from life, in the traditional sense-that is, by attempting to observe and represent the surrounding physical world-and in a personal sense-by allowing the work to remain enmeshed in my own specific experience. In this thesis, I point out the conflation of the two and insist that they are inextricable from one another. My work hopes to use installation to address representation as a means of documentation using video, photography, and artifactual objects. These installations include collections of objects that have been marked by time and are displayed alongside their own documentation. They then exist in our space, in real time, and yet are simultaneously located in the past and future (as is inevitably implied by the presence of any sort of documentation). These works should remind one of the temporality of the object in such a way that recalls Vanitas still life painting-suggesting futility, mortality, and doubt of the material object.
