Overthe past year I've been collecting old home decoration magazines that people have thrown. I found it fascinating how this chaos, all those different topics like fashion, food ads and high art, arebeing juxtaposed in one layout that creates a whole. In my work practice i use that contrast- the Complex mix between Low culture vs. high culture, the expensive one of a kind vs. the common everyday life. Gathering materials from different sources, photographing them, creating a handmade collage and then scanning it so all the layers are flatten back and the image is disassembled and recompose over and over again. Taking the functional and transforming it into something decorative, creating non- functional spaces. Trying to create a structure of desire that invents and distances the object simultaneously
