My name is Juliana Noelle Lynn. I am a photographer and video artist based in Kansas City, MO. My photographs and addition projects most commonly explore themes relating to time, nostalgia, and domesticity. I am fascinated by secrets, memories and miniatures; I am a cat lover, object collector and avid Instagram user. Follow me HERE. I graduated in 2014 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Kansas City Art Institute. Prior to graduation, in 2013 I received the Benjamin A. Gilman Scholarship to study photography in Florence, Italy. After my trip abroad, I began developing an interconnecting animation and collage series, which in 2014 would be awarded First Place in the Lester Goldman Drawing Competition. I have exhibited work in Kansas City and nationally. Please direct all inquires to firstname.lastname@example.org
My animations and collages explore nostalgia and memory by contrasting idealized symbols of the suburban home and personal experiences. The work creates a depiction of the unraveling of home; secrets, rumors, and stories slowly surfacing through use of mundane objects and interiors. Just as memories flicker and fragment themselves, my work allows for a space between the still and moving image, a space where specificity in time and allusions to the past coincide. Restorative and reflective nostalgia, the function of secrecy in society, and the ideology of the American home have been large influences into the conceptual construct of my work. The narratives my animations and collages’ develop use the everyday space in unification with the material process; together they seek to evoke a sense of the past and create psychological space within the present.
