A House, A Home

In the series, A House, A Home, I isolate ubiquitous household objects as a way to begin to investigate traditions of domestic American life. My observations are rooted in my own personal indulgences, expectations, and questions, as well as how I see myself existing within this larger system. I'm interested in revealing some of the complex layers of this shared cultural vernacular through pairing the familiar with the unexpected and creating anticipation that is never quite resolved. The interventions and style of capture re-contextualize the objects as a way to challenge traditional domesticity and to pose questions about convention, consumption, and convenience as staples of American popular culture.

Inland Madeira

There is another side to an Island know for it’s good weather and welcoming people. A place in penumbra, between Europe and Africa, between the XXI’s century and an older way of life.

Plant Love

I photograph plants that appear soft and gentle, but still have a powerful image. I also explore different shapes and forms that I see throughout nature and try to present the plants as if they were growing wild in a jungle, lush with vegetation.

Bar Beach

This series is called: “Ghosts of Bar Beach – bar beach was here!” My approach to image making is experimental. I conceive, orchestrate and deliver images so charged that one might experience their weightiness. The weightiness is achieved when the images resonate with their subject matter, and I refer to this as the cultural payload, an energy which provides cognitive and perceptual resonance.

A Month

All pieces were completed in a month of regimented drawing while also working on a short film about siamese twins. All images are inspired by modern indifference and apathetic outlooks.

Collages by Constanza Aravena

Using a variety of images compiled in years of work as a graphic designer, Constanza Aravena's digital collage takes elements of fashion photography, architecture and nature imagery to create surreal, sometimes absurd images. Constanza tries to rescue beauty, textures, depth and a narrative in photographs sometimes discarded, giving them a second chance in the process of remixing and re-signifying them.

Illustrations by Ana Duje

In her work, Ana Duje has one motto: less is more. She uses vibrant color palettes, simple textures, anthropomorphic figures created from geometric shapes, and a fun imitation of reality. Her pieces, mainly based on character design, illustrate urban everyday-life situations, which is why it's no surprise that most of Ana’s ideas come to her while out and about in the city streets.
