The “Voice of the Cicada” is an ongoing project about the slow power of the mundane. The constructed spaces, the human-induced alterations on the natural environment, as well as the objects that we use in our day-to-day activities, affect us in a more impactful way than we believe they do.
A Polaroid is a unique photographic document. Each one is a material fact describing what the artist found interesting and beautiful to record.

““Moonchild” is a hymn to freedom. To the right to be different. It is also an encounter with Reine, a young woman full of life and positive energy, who has chosen to play on her uniqueness.

It is also a way to express my feminist beliefs.”

The flowers have wilted a little in their vases.
Scattered around are remnants of a celebration:
empty glasses litter the bar, there’s cream from a
half-finished piece of cake smeared on the table.
Everyone else has gone home.
It’s the moment when boundaries begin to blur,
identities start to merge, and the evil twin
subsumes the good one.
