Microcosmos 2017...

An incomplete yet project and the second assemblage installation based on the philosophical idea of the Microcosm. Our world is created in correspondence of the universe and the "Microcosmos" is an alternative world equally corresponding to ours. The work looks at our planet through familiar and yet alien landscapes, an alternative cosmos. Based on tourists' souvenir slides and amateur tourist photography collected over 2 years, it is an ambitious project attempting to document as many countries and popular sites as possible. 

 

The Wisest Man 2017

"The Wisest Man" is an assemblage installation, consisting of 8 light boxes and is based on Socrates' quote " …I am possibly the wisest man alive, for if I know one thing is that I know nothing…". The boxes are a rhetoric conversation about the arrogance of Man and the limited or false wisdom we all have. The work addresses four elements of our ignorance, our relationship with nature, religion, our ideals and finally our overwhelming feeling of superiority. It is accompanied with a poem made of four verses, one for every element, each corresponding to two boxes.

Each light box has one or two "collaged" photos collected from old 35mm slides which can only be viewed through equally collected old photographic lenses.

The Adventures of a Spinster 2016

It all started after a friend donated his aunt's slide collection in an attempt to create space in his loft. He described her as a "spinster" that always travelled. Truly enough the slides documented her travels from the early 60's till recently.

"The Adventures of a Spinster" is a series of 3 light boxes with 10 collages each all from her 35mm slides. They all are little 3D windows to her life.
