In my work, the viewer’s perception is constantly in question. The Known Unknown continues with this thread of investigation, while also addressing the seemingly impossible concept of the universe. As long as the sky has been seen by human eyes, we have struggled to comprehend it’s contents. I use common materials, such as styrofoam, paper, glue, and plexiglass to make studio based photographic references to the overwhelming proposition that is our universe.

The images compel the viewer to be analytical. The audience is introduced to a black and white image of the depths of space. As the investigation continues, it is realized that hole-punched paper stands in for stars, while styrofoam and glue exist as powerful wisps of magnetic plasma. The use of such common materials asks the viewer to examine connections between abstract astrophysics, everyday materials, and their own existence. - (630)460-2843 - Web Site and Content are the Property of Juan Fernandez.
