The Staged project documents performative spaces directed towards the spectator seating area. Each respective environment is devoid of viewers, suggesting the pregnant moment before an anticipated spectacle. The weighty absence of an audience altogether nevertheless insinuates their presence, as well as invites the viewer to contemplate the architectural aspects of each setting. The inversion of the traditional role of actor-as-exhibitionist and audience as voyeur intimates the subjective and constructed nature inherent in all photographs.
