Archeologies of VEGA's Garden
work in progress
edition of unique chromogenic color prints, DIY geodesic dome, living plants
This work in progress in an interdisciplinary project located in my studio which houses a home made geodesic greenhouse, site to a botanical living installation that serves as the stage for photographic and video works. The space has a caretaker known as Madam VEGA who is a time traveling character in a larger narrative situated on an other earth like planet. She is a bio-pirate cultivating various flora in an environment where plants do now grow. The photographs are created with mechanical film photography, multiple exposures, and color darkroom experimental processes to transform a living still life into a virtual flourishing wilderness space through image making.
