Floating City is one sculpture built two times.

The sculpture was first shown at an art gallery in Copenhagen in the spring of 2014 and then a couple of months later at an art’s festival. When that event came to an end, the sculpture was nowhere to be found. It is still unclear what actually happened; if it was stolen or simply thrown away. At that point Floating City was chosen by a jury to be exhibited at Liljevalchs Vårsalong in Stockholm and was therefore built once more. They are not visually identical in detail but it’s nevertheless piece of art – it was just recycled and reborn.

” I use almost exclusively used cardboard. I collect it from the recycling center in my apartment building, from stores and sometimes I find it on the street. I really appreciate the sustainable, earth friendly aspect of reusing a recyclable material. Cardboard also has a lot of expressions. It varies in thickness, hue, color, texture. A bunch of cardboard means so many possibilities to me, when it to others may just be rubbish.”

Jamie Heiden Photographyfinding a little fairytale everyday.

The Beginning

Once upon a time in a land far, far away…or was it right down the road and just the other day? Either way it’s the beginning of a story. A story of everyday, told with just a little bit of fairy tale mixed in. A story that begins with the image and goes wherever your mind takes it, a different place for each and every person.

Jamie Heiden is a photographer first. She gets the most satisfaction out of taking a picture. But when she sits down at her computer, the beginnings unfold. Most of her finished images contain multiple photographic layers. Dodging, burning, boosting contrast and adjusting exposure were all tasks performed in the darkroom that are now tools she has at her fingertips using the computer. What would have taken hours in the darkroom can be done and then undone in half the time, not necessarily making the completed process any shorter but allowing for ten times the amount of experimenting within.

Her titles are an integral part of her images. She loves the journey words allow us to travel. So for her, there is something about the combination of words and pictures that completes the process. But, she’s not a writer and can not offer this journey with words alone. She takes pictures and they are her stories.

So, do you remember how it began?

Once upon a time in a land far, far away there was a little house that lived down a gravel lane. The big oak protected it, the fence post would make it laugh, and the porch swing loved it dearly. Then one day…….

I think it may go something like that.

The End.
