PORTAL is a series of photographs of the same model  in different scales. The model’s structure presents a hallway leading in different directions, a transitory space leading somewhere, else. The patterned wallpaper is by William Morris, who traveled to Iceland around 1871, adds to the confusing effect of manipulation of structure and size. In this visual distortion, where visual cues of shrinking and expanding spaces are barely discerned.
