PhotographyIs this Intention, Fate or Emergence?, 2021

This series is based on the study of phenomenology, the philosophy of experience. We experience our environment through the lens of our learned social norms, cultural background and upbringing. The works explores the idea of what it may look like if we could strip ourselves from these preconceptions and look at our environment more intuitively.

As humanity is facing increasingly more complex questions the answers may require us to be able to look at ‘known’ concepts from new angles. The series seeks to depict the complex, rich interactive layers of possible realities dependent of the person viewing it using the language of abstraction. I have collected natural, unfiltered sea water from the place where the photos were taken to intervene in the static, developed photograph, thus connecting the visual ‘record’ of the place to the experience.
