Liquid Truths

Liquid Truths is my attempt at solidifying a home. At living out life and bringing clarity to everything. It is an attempt to arrive at truth organically, answering my own questions while navigating this fluid ever-shifting terrain. Powered by imagery referential of common middle class suburban life, I search for answers that carry me toward clarity.

Liquid Truths are memories which conjure and explore family (chosen or communal), masculinity (challenged and observed), and what it means to be an adult by societal standards. It is an attempt to make sense of questions which remain unclear – the current that negates the limbo between youth and adulthood. Answers are fluid and circumstantial, and not altogether clear. Liquid Truths traverses this liminal space – it attempts to piece together places and experiences which form my idea of home, in order to lay the foundation of a final home.
