A REPRESENTATIVE IDEA OF THE SHAPE OF THE WORLD

Re-photographed photos of smoke from newspapers. With the origin unknown, is it from polution, a natural disaster or bombing; a smokescreen is created. Questioning what we see and observe. An installation of mixed media, a work in progress.

The smartphone camera has become an integral part of my work. This is not only an experimentation in esthetics, it also questions ownership and a study into the meaning of images that flood todays media, where facts are easily ignored and faked.

From the original photo’s I’ve made an object by altering them, leaving parts out and erasing its source and context. Creating space for people to question its origin, to interpret and reflect on what they see.
