Oedipus Rising, 2011

The title Oedipus Rising refers to the central idea behind an on-going project in which I examine various aspects of the relationship I have with my (then) seventeen-year old son.

This work, in particular, reflects how the balance of power between us is changing every day, as my son matures and takes increasing control of his life.
