“by turning her camera onto her computer and ipad screen to produce this series of photographs, erlea maneros zabala transforms the original documentary on the screen into otherworldly landscapes. surface detritus such as dust, spit, and dog hair interrupt and collapse the space of the pictures. this crossover between analogical and digital contributes to the idea of mixing fantasy and reality. this exploration ultimately constitutes an imaginary territory, a sort of test zone, marked by time, lost in a formal anachronism that accentuates the gap between prospective vision and fallen mythology.”

shortly after posting yesterdays gauzy museum expo (here + here), i ran across the work of artist erlea maneros zabala on we find wildness. erlea photographs images of what she calls “spectacular museum architecture” on her computer. having grown up in bilbao it’s no surprise she’s interested in the topic.

[more fuzzy photos] all of this reminded me of an old post/project that i should probably revive again involving toyo ito’s white u house. for more read this ayh post.
