Within and Without

Danielle C. Head’s work centers on parasocial relationships, phenomenology, history, nostalgia, and solipsism. She explores ways popular historical narratives are constructed through mediated sources and perceived experience. A parasocial relationship is always non-mutual and one-sided. Such relationships can occur outside of the natural boundaries of time, space and reality. She explores these themes using both “real” and “constructed” histories. Her current body of work, Within and Without, explores the multiple lives of accused presidential assassin Lee Harvey Oswald. She also explored these themes in her 2011 body of work, Lester Kannon, examining the life of a fictional 1960s pop idol. Head uses real and counterfeit archival materials, mixed media, constructed objects, and photography to blur the lines between past and present, truth and fiction, the intangible and the material.
