Reverting

Work part of a visual research through materiality on the commoditization of nature in the context of the tourist industry in Iceland. Developed in Reykjavík with the SIM artist-in-residence program.

Gentrification, waste and environmental degradation are some of the problems related to tourism, challenging the idealized image of the Icelandic landscape. During my stay, I photographed highly visited natural locations, which I reinterpreted in combination with the creation of my own handmade recycled paper from waste.

This exploration mirrors the transformative process of manifesting something from the void —a form of alchemy of waste— with the delicate equilibrium of our environment, and the perpetual cycle it follows.
