Phantom Skies, 2006
“What we had in common retained the possibility of overpowering what forced us apart.”
Phantom Skies (2006) series is about alterations of meaning and synaesthesia. It attempts to transform our perspective of time, media, and structures of experience by distorting the notion of a single moment in a process of taking photographs. The work is not about what we see, but how we look at our surroundings, which even when banal, can become thresholds of the imaginary. Using multiple view points and subtle shifts in perspective, the artist turns simple objects into metaphors, and a medium of photography into cartographic drawings, pointing to a phenomenon of one thing being able to evoke something else.
