The Art of Looking by Aya Watada

The Art of Looking by Aya Watada

The appearance of a person can inspire many stories. One may have many faces, many temperaments, and possibilities.

We explore, discover and interpret those layers.We then reconstruct the facets and tell a story; another story than she herself would tell.

“There was the girl, Daniela. I could smell the dusty, dry air. I heard a picturesque fiesta of memento mori. I chased after dull light through the window as the sun set far away”.

“I saw the heroine of that story newly emerged. Here is the girl, the skinny girl. La Flaca. She is innocence and abandonment. Isolation and enthusiasm. Alteration and beyond-ness. She is a story we have told”.
