IT WILL NOT BE THE SAME, BUT IT WILL BE BEAUTIFUL

2020 - ONGOING

 

It Will Not Be The Same, But It Might Be Beautiful is a multimedia investigation of change focusing on objects that have been exhausted by use and transformed by time. This project illuminates that what remains — even through environmental demise — can inspire wonder, help us understand the past, and embolden resilience in the future. Made in collaboration with cinematographer Mike Conti.

How can we explore change while it is happening?
