JENNA ROSE MARTI
new media artist and photographer
Jenna Rose Marti is a new media artist and photographer based in Milwaukee, WI, USA. She works in a wide variety of mediums to explore the human experience through surreal and immersive forms that question more than they answer. She is currently pursuing a Bachelors of Fine Arts in Digital Arts and New Media with an emphasis in Photography at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.
Her current body of work, To Stand Where We Stood, examines our relationship to the landscape as a contextualized space for the memories we experienced there. By utilizing photography for its traditional use of preserving memories, she returns to places and archives images in which the memory lives on. Then digitally alters them to create a surreal landscape to mimic the way the landscape is changed by our memories. Whether sweet and nostalgic, or bitter and painful, the residue left behind by our memories changes our perception of the landscape; This work aims to explore the emotional connections we make to the landscape as places we felt loved, exchanged final words, or felt heartache.
