About: 'Mostly, I want a garden now' is a series of photomontage. 

 

For her latest series ‘Mostly I want a garden now’ she looked into photographs of nuclear explosions and the formation of mushroom clouds. She uses found photo-images and arranges them with her own ‘Bathing- Selfies’. Photomontages then construct an immortal vision from the raw materials. The colours for this series are inspired by polar lights which are indicative of the limitations of human civilization in the cosmic world.

 

The images of those explosions have become a cliché; shock, terror and awe have faded into a mild surprise. 

 

She reflects, “The supreme deterrent, once romanticized, now co-exists as an immortal element. The human search for immortality has led to technological archaeology that is contra-nature; it waits a million years to be discovered.”
