PUBLICATION : IT'S ABOUT YOU BUT ONLY IN A MINOR WAY
2014, 11" x 17"
"Every child at play behaves like a writer, to the extent that he is creating a world of his own invention - or, rather, arranging this world to his own liking... He plays seriously. It is not seriousness that conflicts with play, but reality." - S. Freud
A part of an on-going project of documenting my life with a point-and-shoot, 'Its About You But Only in a Minor Way' interweaves a curation of photos text made up of fragments from the overheard, dairy entries, and dreams. The end result is a surrealist travelogue and expedition of Phillips's life that plays with notions of storytelling while engaging an ethnography survey of contemporary society. The book is one part of an ongoing series in Phillip's constant attempt to use herself to document her life and the illusiveness of life itself.
