The Owner

People like to collect things. Since the 18th-century industrial revolution, people started to fill up their houses with things that they need and love. The things that they do not need are still stored in storage boxes or simply thrown away.
The human has realised that he became the proud owner of his materialistic world. But what will happen with all the things that have been manufactured already and don’t serve their purpose anymore?
The Owner is a 7 hours video time-lapse of my last moving out and it incorporates the smallest version of stuff that I have ever had.

Luiza Preda

Luiza Preda mainly works with photography and moving images. Until recently, her projects have been more autobiographical. She has been interested in self-portraiture and how to use the camera as a therapeutic tool. Her practice includes working with double-exposures and the light-painting technique. 

As she has been deliberately living in multiple places where her cultural background received several different inputs, her projects explore themes such as migration, cultural identity and the new roles of the artist in our modern society.

“I can only acknowledge photography as a way of being and living. I do not see still and moving images as a sum of decisive moments, but more as a system of small bits of reality that, with the passing of time, will reveal new meanings.  I am not a nostalgic 35mm person. I am intrigued by how creativity can be combined with the new technologies used in manufacturing cameras.”
