Electric Sun

Electric Sun is an exploration of the night-scapes

and the daily lit environment in which the blurred

boundary between technosphere and biosphere,

creates alternative realities. The project sees the

electric source as the fuel for new rituals.

 

Part of the research was done at and supported by AiR Destination Unknown. With Electric Sun, Jessica is been awarded at the Colour competition from the Indipendent Photographer 2019 and Young Photographer 18 from ORTE Austria. The project is been nominated for the Hugo Roelandt prize 2019, Blurring the Lines, Emerging Photographer from the Blue Berlin Gallery; and exhibited at Fotografica 18, European Month of Photography Berlin 18,  Graduation Show hosted by FoMu Antwerp, Si Fest OFF #10 among others. The project was presented at the Kosovo Architecture Festival 19 with a lecture and a workshop. Selected for the Still Young Gallery in Milan by Alessandro Curti during the Si Fest 2019.

Rain Flower Walk

More and more people understand the power of sonic surroundings. People want to enjoy natural sounds, but they play the digital form of it via headphones. Nature and cities are offering already a large range of interesting “songs” played in space. Rain Flower Walk I want to show that the correlation sound-people’s movement and landscape is possible. The outdoor installation for public sphere and private gardens, amplifies sound of rain letting people experience the sonic landscape.

 

From 2016 the installation was placed in various public parks between The Netherlands and Italy, here a selection of places.
