Daniel Hill

A Series of Confinement

In this work, I interrogate the often conflicting desires to both belong to and break free from social categories or labels. Through a series of sequential self-portraits stitched together into video animations, I examine the tensions between corporeal boundaries and the boundaries of societal norms from a queer-feminist position, often with heavy references to the Feminist Art Movements. The animations, based on analog photography, are projected onto a square object with smaller compartments. Each animation tells its own story while interacting with one another within & without the object’s compartments. The lines and spaces within the object reveal the power dynamics between the individual and environmental and social constraints.
