Dreams in a Ghost House (2023 - Present)
The project Dreams in a Ghost House started when I was searching for a particular ghost of a woman in white. While doing research, I found a quote in Colin Dickey’s pivotal work Ghostland: An American History in Haunted Places: “Ghosts, you could say, flock to women left alone.” This quote resonated with me deeply and allowed me to consider my own personal connections to supernatural stories about those who had departed the mortal coil. It also made me think of the way in which grief has been a consistent state of being for me over the past five years. This work is meant to explore what it means to feel haunted how a ghostly presence is nothing more than a projected desire to see what is lost.
