EMPTY SPACES

EMPTY SPACES

In Empty Spaces, solid man-made structures are juxtaposed with their morphing natural surroundings. The project is a reflection on the infinite versatility of space. Shot at the Chianti Foundation in Marfa, Texas, the images accentuate the sublime atmosphere that originates from altering a wild terrain, by adding new architectural forms and textures. An analysis of this new environment evidences the commonalities all, nature, art, and architecture share in their designs’ precision, and highlights the essence of change by examining the cause and effect relationship between the three. By creating this new visual realm, the audience is also encouraged to reflect on the concept of belonging and displacement, and our connection to this Earth.

First exhibited in PERSONAL STRUCTURES - open borders, at the European Cultural Center in the context of the 57th Venice Art Biennale.
