Enough with the plain photo postcards you send to family and friends when traveling abroad; actually no one sends postcards anymore and it’s time they should, as Caterina Rossato creates the coolest postcards you’ve ever seen.
The artist creates 3D postcards by layering landscapes out of old images and postcards, exploring the notions of the traditional into the new and evoking the different out of the familiar, “I create landscapes made through a collage of other landscapes, combining images in which the sense of recognition of reality slips from one level to another and it is never clearly identified.
The series is titled “Deja Vu” and it’s a game between the idea of recognition and the sensation of recognition. “The déjà vu is a psychic phenomenon which is part of the forms of alteration of memories (paramnesie): it consists in the erroneous sensation of having seen an image or of having lived previously an event or a situation that is occurring. Although improperly, it is also called ‘false recognition,” the artist explains.
