Installation, small scale models made from prints, iPhone flashlight
The work Untitled (Ruins) is an installation that consists of light projection on small scale models manually cut from prints. The models, based on imagery found on the internet, are those of ruins of western civilizations, remains of battered places and other buildings in a state of decay. As in my previous works, my desire is to recreate something that is broken and define a place of home.

The series Broken houses is based on photographs of abandoned structures neglected by man and destroyed by the weather. I find these photos on the web while pursuing an amateur photographer from North Dakota who obsessively documents the decaying process of these houses. His photographs are used to create small scale models. Afterward, in the studio, the models are photographed again, omitted from their background and placed in gray. Eventually these are digital pigment print size 30×36 cm (16”x18”).
