This series, looking back, seems an allusion to my current work.  In 2006-2007, i needed to take interferon for 16 months, a form of immunotherapy.  The treatment consited of a shot, once a week, and the shot always made me sick.  So i was stuck.  Stuck home, stuck in bed, stuck at the desk.  Maybe I became interested in war as an analogy for what my body was going through, but I started building these models. I was able to get lost in them, focus on something other than the pain or discomfort I was dealing with.   Thankfully, the treatment was successful, and my interest in these figures diminished.  But I couldn't let go of them. They felt like a time capsule of struggle, that I didn't want to let go of.  So finally, in 2013 (Three years before my constructed landscapes), I had this Idea to set them up and photograph them in a way that gave them a life.  I've seen people do this with toys done in such a way that they are indistinguishable from reality, but that wasn't my intent.  My solution for this was to set them up on a blanket.  I had always used blankets as a kid to setup landscapes for my toys, so it seemed appropriate to continue this.  I still don't know what they mean, if anything, but I always liked these images
