Cuban-born Eduardo Muñoz Ordoqui creates multiple-exposure photographs by projecting a combination of images onto three-dimensional backgrounds. Condensing time and geography, the artist’s compositions reflect the methodic generation of political and social ideologies.
In Cartas por Sabina (Sabina’s Letters) (1998-2000), the artist has melded stills of video letters from his sister, family photographs, and the interior architecture of his apartment to create a visual journal¬ that evokes feelings of displacement and uncertainty. Reflecting a life defined by immigration, the images poignantly narrate the struggle to find meaning in a foreign place.
