The photographs in Careful, Icarus. are fragments and excerpts of video-stills and photographs presented in various formats. No photo-filters or other manipulation tools were used. The focus of the pieces lies within the colorfulness and abstractness so they evoke a painted like quality.


Careful, Icarus. proposes a formal inversion that inherently affects the delivery of content as shaped by its original medium. Following processes of extraction / expansion, works become material for other works: videos become material for generating photographs.


Reinventing different narratives other than the original, this selection addresses a range of interests elaborated throughout my practice: the perception of space and time within the vastness of ruins or surroundings and nature.
