This collection is inspired by the expression “many moons ago” which means "a long time ago". The term is attributed to the Kuna people, who tracked time-based on the full moon cycle. My process involves blending and collaging photos and videos I captured while traveling throughout Central and South America, and I use AI to generate images and animations of regenerative land. The collection personally evokes a sense of connection between the past, present, and future, while also advocating for environmental consciousness and ecological regeneration.
A surreal and abstract blurring of the lines between the human form and the raw elements of the Earth.
An abstract representation of global migration and shipping routes. Inspired by the essence of fragmentation, disconnection, and the underlying tensions that define our contemporary world. It contemplates the physical and emotional barriers that divide us while highlighting the resilience and strength that emerges from the human spirit. A visual reminder of the inherent interconnectedness between all living things, emphasizing the profound impact our actions have on the delicate balance of the natural world.
Self Portrait (Many Moons)
In this self-portrait, I reflect on the profound bond I share with multiple environments, transcending physical distances. Drawing inspiration from the phrase "many moons ago," which denotes the distant past and hails from the timekeeping traditions of the Kuna people, who tracked time based on the full moon cycle. My process involved collage, merging images captured during my travels across Central and South America. I then used AI to blend various photographs and paintings I created, as a testament to my profound connection with the natural world and the timeless thread that weaves through my experiences and memories. It is an amalgamation of landscapes, emotions, and cultural nuances that find a home within me, resonating far beyond the confines of time and space.
