50 WAYS TO MAKE ORANGE is a collection of photo weavings that utilize the figure of O.J. Simpson and orange(s) as a conceptual framework for exploring the possibilities and limitations found in visual language. The act of weaving allows information in the previous images to be concealed and revealed in their interactions. The newly mutated images challenge the notion that meaning can be understood and interpreted thru mere observation. Identities can not be seen as singular or detached, but vacillating because they are contextual.
