Dental Series, digital prints, 2003

Essentially this project is a series of 'self' portraits that were taken during a year long period of dental work. In addition to documenting the process of holes being excavated and filled, reflecting the road-work and construction occuring in the city outside, I was also exploring ideas of release of authorship and loss of control. The camera was handed over to the dentist or assistants who documented the work when they saw fit.
