Drawing on personal experiences and stories, Margeaux Walter forms an intimate exploration of daily life on a familial, social, and personal level. Each piece is built from multiple images; real photographs, scale models and studio portraits.Walter plays with the border between reality and fantasy, and incorporates a 3-dimensional effect to replicate the visual imagery that we constantly see in the media and advertising. Using lenticulars, each piece allows the viewer to move along with the images and immerse themselves in the embarrassment, loneliness, laughter, and uncanny moments that are present both in these images, and in everyday life.
