Photography from High Waters, a collaborative multimedia project: Lea Jazbec &  Brane Širca, 2024.

HIGH WATERS (2023-2024), COLLABORATIVE MULTIMEDIA PROJECT BY LEA JAZBEC & BRANE ŠIRCA

The authors, who create in different media within the multimedia project High Waters, transition between analog and digital. The project originates from found material: damaged slides recovered after a flood that struck Slovenia in 2023. The slides are further processed through digitization: Through scanning, photography, video, animation and installation, it leads to additional decomposition and deterioration of the photographic record, resulting in the creation of new abstract slides with interesting painterly and graphic characteristics.
We are contemplating the current environmental philosophy, as humanity has reached the limit of acceptable behavior towards our shared living space. We are questioning the potential for improved cooperation, mutual assistance, coexistence, and mutual existence in the future. We are exploring how to overcome the growing controversy surrounding our attitudes towards our natural environment and our relationships with one another. Through the project, we subtly and poetically depict the cause and effect.
