The essence of the Houses Series finds its roots in the art movement of Cubism, a visionary approach that deconstructed conventional objects and reassembled them in an abstract, fragmented manner. Within the Houses Series, this methodology is harnessed to transmute an ordinary European suburban dwelling into a Cubist rendition.
This series embarks on a profound expedition, delving into the intricate interplay between photography and architecture. It deploys collaged images to question the very essence of an object by relocating it in diverse settings, applying varied materials, and presenting it from different angles. The inspiration for this representational technique can be traced to the work of the celebrated architect Philipp Schaerer and his Bildbaute series.
Despite the material transformations, the form of the object remains unaltered. This revelation underscores the pivotal roles that perspective and environment play in shaping our perception of space.
