Urban Speculation, 2014- Ongoing

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 uncanny structures reflect on the power of the cultural archetype in a contemporary context and examines social consciousness lingering between past - future, Utopia -dystopia.
