Alienators (2019) is a series of collages using photographs of modernistic houses taken from architecture books and mounted on oxidized aluminum. The project considers the alienating impact of modernistic architecture on the shape of our personal and urban environment. The series is re-envisioning the past and future of architecture exploring the monstrosity of modernist architecture. The modernist houses often look like alien structures with no sense of gravity that landed in the landscape of our cities. They dominate the space disregarding the ecological sensitivity and context of the site often disrupting a fragile network of relations. Transformed into Alienatros they are sent to space floating freely where they belong.
