Epiphany | Photography


Epiphany is a moment of sudden or discovery that usually changes you in some way. This project is a response to a constant shift in contemporary perception of real and unreal both in physical or constructed landscapes. Vibrant color, harsh natural lighting, painted wood panel, and transparent /translucent architectural sample material installed to expose the astounding moment of mental realism. I want to question how urban architecture can have a phenomenological effect and to what extent the presence of a body in space can change our way of contemplating the real and unreal. The scenography brings out the viewer’s curiosity, desiring to find out how the illusion of space was created.
