Trial & Error
Trial & Error explores an essential element of being. Amid rules, preconceptions, and expectations we learn to present ourselves through evaluation, judgment, and assessment. Only by trial and error do we come to an understanding of who we are and how (or if) we fit into our surroundings. Often it is the most subtle elements of our self-representation that evoke extensive considerations of discomfort, adjustment, and resolve.
Trial & Error is a collaboration between photographer Doug Hanson and performing artist Rachel Elizabeth Maley.
