2019 - 2020, ongoing.

These images are part of an ongoing aerial collection focused on elemental struggle, intense experiences of hue and surface, and the adrenaline rush of looking straight down unimpeded.

Multiples

2019
 

In-camera double exposure photographs that create the illusion of more than one of me in the frame. In reality there is one, in the photo there are two, in my mind; multiple.

I was Murdered

2020


This project is an exploration of crime scenes, and it holds the idea of murder evidence on its core. I was murdered is influenced by murder scenes and how they can be unfolded through a series of images; how forensic photographers must strategically take their photos and the importance of evidence. This series focuses on evidence, crime scene reconstruction and uses that as a tool to tell what could have happened within the pictures.

Insaneclownpussy
 

2020

Much of my work focuses on identity, relationships, intimacy, memory, vulnerability, and connection. As a queer non-binary artist, it is crucial to my practice to weave themes of queerness into my work. Recently my practice has become more performance based, which is where Insaneclownpussy was born. Over the summer months I received a diagnosis of a personality disorder; in order to cope and navigate these new labels, I created a persona to help make the intangible tangible. I use this character to perform an identity that for so long I did not have words to describe. Personifying mental illness and giving it autonomy has been incredibly important to my wellness. This image is proof of Insaneclownpussy’s existence.

Unsightly Characteristics 

2020

This project is a survey of the lower income neighborhoods and back alleys of Saint John, New Brunswick and Halifax, Nova Scotia. These photographs go against the provincial propaganda of dream like shorelines and clean cities, they show the sides of the cities that I grew up in and identify with.

Something you Whisper

2020
 
Through creating a series of Belgian linen prints depicting open, honest letters to people of significance in her life, Halliday explores her relationship with these people through a series of self-portraits. Throughout her final semester at NSCAD Halliday looks at the complex relationship she shares with the people in her life. She uses her handwritten letters along with her body in the natural environment to better understand both her love and frustration that lives within these relationships. She hopes to accept and express the words written on the page that she has yet to express aloud.

Iffy Steps

2020

These days (2020 pandemic) everything in our lifestyle is changed including our walking style. There is no more certain, self-confident, and sturdy walking. Modern humans used to walk with high self-steam as the best of creatures, the winner, or maybe the picked one. The new social distancing regulation and the fear of getting the virus made us doubtful even in our walking, the simplest social behavior of our daily life. In this project, I tried to show a part of the iffiness of these days' life.

HALIFAX: memento mori
2020
 
A desolate urban environment has been captured within these frames [April 2020]. In the uncomfortable spirit of COVID-19, a metaphorical prognosis of the disease’s awful realities has been suggested. This triptych shows Halifax in its genesis of symbolically becoming a memento mori.

Introspect

2020


This series portrays how one's eyes can play tricks with the mind and fools one into tricking what they want to see rather than how they see it.
