Geisto
First off, "Geisto" comes from the German geist, we all know that means ghost or spirit. Adding the "o" Americanizes the word likening it to a product, like "Dran-o." The exhibition included a dozen artists showing work created specifically for this cultural exchange.
I created a series of seven 30-inch by 40-inch color photographs using a combination of my travel photos and appropriated images. Each photograph has two layers Đ a background image and a white overlay Đ for a total of fourteen elements within the series.
