iExist is a serial photographic project, a forthcoming artist book and exhibition. iExist is a collaboration between a human and her smartphone. Formulating a distinct artistic practice for iExist I imposed a strict conceptual rule for my photographic series. Every morning, after getting up, I peer through a window and take a photograph with my smartphone. Each photograph replicates my perspective at a specific place and time. However, place and time can be variable, a difference that effects the composition of each photograph. Capturing the passage of time iExist is a confirmation of the self. Yet my methodology, expressed through the perceived veracity of the photographic medium, also serves as a confirmation of the human existence.
