Marzipan Project artist statemet

Marzipan Project

Artist Statement
Heather Bal

When i went to Puerto Rico I took two 24 shot disposable Fuji cameras with me. I wanted to work within a documentation format that had an indirect process.
Then I purchased a pear piece of Marzipan from a bakery and carried it with me for two days. I only put it down to sleep at night, go to the bathroom, and take pictures in different environments.
The work then became this narrative of the action. The end documentation is more about experimenting with format and presentation of the action. To see how is it perceived, fades and fluxes through the viewer.
