The Zero series stems from different sources of inspiration. On a personal note it deals with loss, emptiness and social withdraw. On a more worldly base it deals with the technological progress and flow of time, the nostalgia for the gadgets from 10-20 years ago and the nostalgia for older times in general. It deals with the way social media defaces us and causes more disconnect and emptiness than ever before.
The zeros are an obvious point to binary codes but in this case the binary code becomes that of absence. She’s creating, a space, a groundless landscape of a junkyard made from digital nostalgia, old machines, the abandoned social media profiles, even literally, lost and unrecovered files from a computer crash.
Strange Lens is an experimental mixed media and video artist. She received her BFA in Photography from George Mason University in 2015 and is currently pursuing her Master’s in Painting at Mason. She uses a variety of styles and techniques to create works that are often inspired by dreams and memories.
