Host, Noise, Parasite (2017)

Photo essay series exploring found photography as a metaphor based around 12 postcards of the Rheinfall, Switzerland.  Appended texts are drawn from fragments of literary responses by Goethe and Mary Shelley.

Host, Noise, Parasite uses found materials to explore motion, synchronicity and drift and metaphors of Parasite proposed in the philosophical writings of Michel Serres.

“The parasite intervenes, enters the system as an element of fluctuation. It excites [the system] or incites it; it puts into motion, or it paralyses it. It changes it's state, changes it's energetic stance, it's displacements and condensations”

Michel Serres, Parasite (2007) Posthumanities
