The images in Wilting manipulate a landscape that is simultaneously autobiographical, documentary, and fictional–a weaving of myth and symbol in order to examine the chaos of storytelling.
The often disregarded underbelly of a post-fact world seems to be the simultaneous beauty and danger of fiction. Using the grammar of nature, Wilting pushes past questions of validity of evident field recordings and into a much more human sense of reality: faulted, broken, and real. Wilting treads the lines of journalism, spectacle, and the nuanced absurdity of small town gossip.
