Exploring the idea of temporal states in time in response to the COVID-19 Pandemic, ‘Staging Uncertainty’ acts as a form of personal reflection and understanding which aims to find a sense of assurance at a time of huge uncertainty and frustration. Concerned particularly with the passing of time within the domestic space – and very much the idea of being absorbed by ‘lost time’ – I have created a subtle narrative that focuses on the representation of human thought and emotion. Rather than seek out and capture a ‘decisive moment’ of absorbed reverie, I have staged the scene as more a constructed and immersive moment. Symbolising the temporal state of the current moment I have used household objects to create ephemeral set-ups in which the domestic space becomes a backdrop for the familial. Questioning the line between the documentary and the theatrical, all assumptions about photography, representation and reality merge into one.
