(What happened when) I stopped pretending to know
(What happened when) I stopped pretending to know is a photographic series that explores how we relate to uncertainty. We are confronted with our universal lack of understanding through the series of images that show multiple failed attempts to understand the world.
The work deals with the positive and the negative sides of uncertainty that are now so applicable to artists, graduates and anyone else for that matter. The intention for this series has never been to explain or to reveal anything in the way some other art does. Instead of seemig to know more than the viewer, it shows the way someone might respond when losing themselves in unanswered questions.
