“A blueprint does not predict the cracks that will develop in the future; it describes an ideal state that can only be approximated” (Rem Koolhaas)
In my work, I address social patterns and their representation. I use photography as a raw material, an initial image, seeking the difference - or the similarity - between the image as a personal or social signifier, and the secondary production concealed in the ways it is used.
My work refers to the concept of interruption of utility - actions and ideas that cannot materialize. For example, Nininger was planned as an architectural utopia that would make it become an ideal social and economic town. Yet after the financial crisis in 1857, it became a ghost town.
Using representations of architectural practices and decorative actions,
I create systems of coded forms that expose the visible description and incorporate humanity's utopic ideal of the world.
