For the GlogauAIR Open Studios, the artist is working on the project ‘Tela’, which translates to "screen" and also "canvas" in Portuguese. ‘Tela’ delves into the evolving landscape of image consumption. Screens not only transform the visual and material nature of images but also evolve technologically while succumbing to deterioration over time. This project explores the dynamics of image dissemination devices and its properties, considering the physical characteristics of this emerging image-object.
The idea for the project started as an investigation on why the artist prefers working with analog and alternative photography than with digital photography. And continued with questions like: what is the digital image made from? And also: what are the differences between these two? Since then the project is focusing on the materiality of screens and their relationship with light.
