In collaboration with THE STANDARD HOTEL in Downtown LA, ART.COM and SNAPS. I’m thrilled to present my most recent project the “Living Collage”. The project features an interactive experience hosted by SNAPS for patrons of the STANDARD HOTEL as well as passersby who are intrigued by the visual presence of this large mixed media collage. The image itself is a futuristic landscape with imposing architectural elements devoid of its central characters. The concept of the “Living Collage” means visitors first photograph themselves using the SNAPS app and insert themselves as characters into the “Living Collage” while creating strange and compelling images. Finally, visitors to the “Living Collage” share their digital creations with friends on social media.

Stop by and be part of the “Living Collage”!
