abstract landscapes

abstract landscapes is a project that grew out of the desire to create a deeper connection with the domestic space that I am currently inhabiting. The mobility of our lives often means that we find ourselves in new dwellings devoid of personal traces, devoid of memories.

In this project I am trying to challenge this feeling of detachment by paying attention to barely visible traces of my interactions with the small apartment that I am now living in. Playfully capturing these minute details through photography and video helps me build a connection with the space, yet, ironically, also results in defamiliarization and abstractization.

The project also includes remodeling materials found around the house in little sculptures that become the subjects for photo and video works.

For these videos I used manually recycled paper, a small plastic container, and wax to model two abstract sculptural objects, which then became the subject of short macro-video works.
