Entropiphilia is a photographic project which seeks to recontextualise my memories and experiences in a fictional universe. Derived from the state - entropy - and the Greek - philia - denoting love or affection, the word encapsulates the complicated feelings I hold for the chaotic and disordered roots of my existence. If entropy is the origin of all things - like the universe at bang - then too it is the catalyst for the space I am creating. With it, it brings the profound affection I have for these myriad beginnings.
It is said we file trauma deep within the confines of our bones, embed our genes with the nuances of memory and lived experience. Perhaps then it is also true that we hold the capacity to reimagine these facets of ourselves into new realms, to place them where they might begin to unravel new contexts and imbue themselves with new narratives, in the process shifting their histories and altering the course of how we retain the core of their teachings.
