Lightbox Collages are made by gluing transparent images to 16″ x 20″  boxes that emit light.  Images are culled from my original 16mm and 35 mm film outtakes, as well as photographs I recorded on the street, old film strips, and hand painted slides bought on the street in Montevideo, Uruguay.

Each piece combines new and old, found and created images juxtaposed in unexpected and inventive ways so that an unfamiliar, yet eerily resonant world is stitched together in each work.  These lightboxes reference photographic images, protocinematic investigations (zoetropes, sequential slides etc), cultural detritus and the collage aesthetic to become more than the sum of their parts.
