Nortigo 1 – Experience Music Project 2016

‘Nortigo’ is an exercise in shifting points of view as a gesture to reveal new and interesting information, compositions and feelings from spaces designed to form tangible connections between above and below, by looking straight up towards the ceiling, atrium or sky. The progression from indoor to outdoor spaces supplements the introvert/extrovert design polarity, while the pairing of classical buildings with modern, postmodern and cosmogenic architecture allows for comparative viewing experiences and a diverse showcase of architectural typologies.

Terrain Vague 1 – South Beach Miami 2016

‘Terrain vague’ is a series of cityscapes that transmit polar feelings of intimacy and anonymity, undefined and memorable, characteristic of this postmodern metropolitan condition. A threshold urban state blurring the intentional with the accidental, the obsolete with the regenerated, the natural with the man-altered.
The series combines fine art, architectural and urban photography genres.

AQAL Views 1 – Lower Manhattan 2015

‘AQAL Views’ is a series of urban waterscapes; blurred waterscapes and moving skies meet building silhouettes and auxiliary structures in a merging dance between the perpetual and the ephemeral. In the integral lexicon, ‘AQAL’ means an “all quadrant, all level matrix of reality”, and points to the cross-cultural fact that all humans have 1st-, 2nd-, and 3rd-person perspectives, and that all humans wake, dream, and sleep. We all live in “AQAL space” and such is our viewing.
