For the GLUE Festival 2021, Merin is presenting photos of an Existing Industrial area and of Created new Figures, two radically opposing working methods for a one-way ticket to Utopia.
One series is studio work that opens the doors to a fantastic bestiary through the use of organic materials. The other series captures, in fragments, the overscale of a post-industrial dropped out of the city.
Both series are questioning our perception of the present world in the light of the words of our fiction. These journeys in mimesis are catching you by some rigorous framings of a misleading reality, which is escaping from itself. In to a dream?
The way we design, with a premeditated target, is a method to question and to think about. By skipping a target and just using the ingredients you have to design with new surprising designs can be created.
