Interior Portraits: Nolenstraat / Nathalia Martinez Saavedra
Author: Nathalia Martinez Saavedra
– Function : Research / Concept
– Site location: Rotterdam, The Netherlands
– Year : 2014
– Institution: Piet Zwart Institute – MIARD
– Brief description of the project:
My research is based in the different readings that image making, particularly photography can generate.
As an architect and photographer my aim is to make a connection between these two fields in order to question today’s image representation of interior spaces and eventually create other alternatives that might develop different ways of conceiving and understanding the places we inhabit.
I am interested in the way the inhabitants of an interior alter and transform the space and how visualizing their traces can inspire new ideas. I am also interested in the relation between interior and exterior spaces and the possibility of blending both by visually merging one into the other to create a new type of space that is neither inside nor outside.
Juxtaposing multiple events and visualizing what is not possible to capture with our eyes is the main motivation for this project. My objective goes beyond documenting interiors as they are in reality and thus I intend to focus in the atmospheric qualities and immaterial aspects contained in space.
