The Micaela Lattanzio Fragmenta series takes apart portraits an intricately pieces them back together bit by bit. By way of the splintered images, the artist is examining human identity in many of its more minute forms.
Recreations of original works that have been disassembled and re-envisioned here are chaotic and orderly all at the same time. While the sliced an diced layout is all over the place, human faces are still instantly recognizable, making no mistake of the subjects.
According to the Italian photographer, this project builds on the topic of consciousness, which is often a mixture of perspectives specific to every individual. Through processes of destruction and construction, Lattanzio is touching on the distinctiveness of each of these viewpoints.
