James A. Meaux
The photographs of events and objects in my life are my proof of existence. They serve as a way of remembering the order and details of each day, giving me a clear experience of being. Collecting and documenting these events are important in understanding daily routines and habits that are in everyone’s human experience. Through the action of documenting and keeping track of my daily routine I am able to focus on things that occur in the human experience such as consumption, and materialism. Photographing everything that I consume I begin to realize how much we consume in everyday life. I am interested in bringing recognition of the quality of attention as a whole to gain a broader and more enlightened outlook on life. By giving attention and thought to the mundane I am able to understand and notice the things that I take for granted in the world.
