Private Universe picks elements from extremely close surroundings and projects them to the infinite, the cosmic.
The five different photos, interlocked and supporting one another, depict abstract scenarios printed on acetate. When layered, the images produce new environments of impossible nature - views that seem to only be foundable in outer space. In reality, the images depict day to day objects, specifically, in this case, the rough fabric of my backpack, a flake of dust on the carpet, the texture of paper, the right sleeve of my coat, and my desk.
With Private Universe, I wanted to look at the immediacy of images about the Universe and its celestial bodies (see NASA's Instagram profile) and how that contrasts with the incredibly complicated nature of the cosmos.
Exhibited at the Royal College of Art for the one-day exhibition Screwed, 27th of March 2019
