KRISTA SVALBONAS — MIGRATOR | ** RHONDA WILSON AWARD RECIPIENT **
Ideas of home have always been compelling to me as the child of parents who arrived in the US as refugees. “Migrator” began with photographs in the three locations I have called home in the past eight years: the New York, Pennsylvania, and Chicago. Images are printed on dibond and CNC routed and reassembled in sets of three. I constructed sculptural planes in mdf at various heights and angles thereby creating hybrid structures that reinterpret and reinvent architecture, disrupting space, light, and direction. “Migrator” turns an analytical gaze on the architecture of my past and present while offering a personal reflection on the nature of home.
