The Regular

The Regular, 2006—2009

In the winter of 2006, the U.S. Air Force deployed Casey, a close friend and relative, to Ballad, Iraq. We undertook a collaborative project, incorporating his sound recordings, photographs and perceptions into my work. Through photography, video, and sound, I created several multimedia installations that addressed his departure, deployment and homecoming. “The Regular” is a long-term project that began in 2005, resulting in the creation of the installations “Means Without End,” 2008-2009, “Waiting Room,” 2006, and “Roadside,” 2006.
