Urban Speculation’ is a recreated fictitious
urban environment. My focus is a collaged architecture, which stands as a
metaphor for a failed promise. The process includes collaging internet-based
imagery that references Modernism, a style affiliated with forms of Utopian
thought which strived to better human life through design of space. By creating
fictitious collages, I perpetuate the failure of Utopian architecture. These
reflect on the power of the cultural archetype in a contemporary context and
examines social consciousness lingering between past - future, Utopia -dystopia.
