Tales from a Sun-Drenched Elsewhere
Diana Lowenstein Fine Arts Gallery
September 11- October 31

Press Release:
Illuminated totem poles covered in crochet, knittings and found objects reveal the similarities between modern, hi-tech materials (micro-controlled neon lights) and colloquial, lo-tech crafts (crochet, knittingsand weavings) used, creating an equilibrium between traditions, technologies and generations.

Old ways and new technologies commingle together exploring how we connect to reality today.
Tales from a Sun-Drenched Elsewhere explores the nostalgic desire to revisit time like space, refusing to surrender to the irreversibility of time.
