sentiment petit a

sentiment petit a consist of sixty-six cyanotypes made from images of objects in Verónica’s apartment and my own. With no specificity given regarding the owner of the objects depicted, our relationship can be experienced through the physical manifestation of a gradually shared sentiment within our respective homes. This adoption of aesthetics mimics the developmental process of language learning. The cyanotypes are the recollection of symbolic objects that replace the words taught by the biological mother, producing a new visualization of the objet petit a, or cause of desire. The use of cyanotype serves as a democratizing agent, while also referencing architectural history and the domestic sphere.
