An Occupation

2011-2012. Archival pigment prints.
Variable dimensions.

In this non-linear photographic essay, the artist reflects upon the contemporary Occupy Wall Street uprisings and the changing American urban landscape. Pairing disparate images of cityscapes, natural environments, Occupy Oakland, and places of work, Khor places trust in the personal meaning and connections viewers associate with images. The essay does not rely on words to lead the viewer; rather, words exist as part of the architecture of the built environment, visible in everyday signs. Stimulated by our global economic collapse, the photographs meditate on the uncertainty and the potentiality of hope in our local and global communities.
