Marionettes and Other Ghosts of Vision explores the persona of imagination through character portraits and the inherent performance exchanged between Self and Persona. Juliet's love for noirish film scenes and gritty cinematic locations inspires these environmental character portraits and reflects a sense of longing, perhaps to be accepted, seen, and recognized as a strong, dynamic and often melancholy presence. Drawn to solitude and detritus, shape, light and darkness, dramatic weather and emotion, Juliet’s imagery focuses on finding the beauty in the mundane, abandoned structures and objects that go mostly unnoticed.

Juliet Haas' series Marionettes and Other Ghosts of Vision celebrates the collaborative process between Self and Subject. The story hints at what role these souls might have played in this space, the Ghosts of this seemingly haunted, former railroad employee hospital, rumored psyche ward, who are now forever lost in the palpable spirit of this abandoned place.
