About ‘The Others‘:
The Others is a series inspired by Res’s experiences as a queer teenager growing up in suburban New Jersey. Playing with feelings of angst and alienation the work looks at common suburban landmarks and High School tropes (cars, sports, pets and a motley crew of characters) to present a bizarre portrait of world that pushes beyond the familiar to rest in the potential and possibility found within the unknown.
