Let's Take the Wrong Way Home
Let’s Take the Wrong Way Home is a collection of photomontage works that are representations of landscapes that do not exist. Each piece is a combination of photographs from both places I call home, constituting an unfulfilled dream for those places to become one. I used Google Street View to document places of great personal significance in my hometown of Wrocław. Hand processed and printed sheets of negative film were combined with silver prints depicting Irish natural landscape. Textual errors, caused by the speed of broadband, result in a hybrid of urban-rural, digital-analogue, human and non-human, present moment and remembered. Dislocation finds its place in between the images that emerge and the dream of reconciling these realities.
