Aporia Series | 2006

I began the Aporia Series while sitting in a state of inarticulate longing at the counter of the Triangle Cafe in West Oakland. After watching the cook’s repetitious dance along the edge of the grill I asked if I could photograph her work. She invited me back and I began shuffling alongside her, focusing on the geometric landscape she orchestrated out of eggs, sausages and other breakfast items.

The title of this series comes from a term used by Socrates in Plato’s Meno. It refers to a state of being in which someone is shown they don't know what they thought they knew and, in turn, they are inspired to seek further knowledge.
