Kalliope has submitted a project titled "Glass Houses."
Glass Houses is a series of conceptual self portraits created using
distortion mirrors. These portraits explore the fragmentation of the
self, or the hidden self which is often underlaid beneath a facade.
These fragmentations are the subconscious or conscious fears and desires
which cannot be seen through facial expressions or gestures. I chose to
portray these feelings through the complete deconstruction and
distortion of the physical form.
In the photograph "Disease" for example, She wanted to show the interior world of the subject. The fear of death is seen as a grotesque figure arising from the navel of the bed-ridden character. These distortions are meant to allude to the interior world of the subject through in-camera alterations of the body which were captured in the split-second bending of the mirror.
