Saint, Virtual Inhabitance
Saint is establishing their virtual inhabitance by creating collages at the convergence of URL and IRL. These collages stand as photographic works of American design and middle-class actualities.
“Each object that I include in a collage has a virtual origin – from
craigslist, Facebook marketplace, internet archive, google images. Every one of these objects also directly references its real-life interface. It loses its sense of direct belonging, but in its recontextualization, it develops a relationship within its composition. All of these share roots in a highly nostalgic American landscape and indicate its socioeconomic working class.”
