Light America: American wanderings of a Cardboard Stand-up.

Itinerant, Performative, Photographic Project: “Light America” is a photographic journey across the United States of America with Scarlett O’Hara’s cardboard Stand-up to suggest a symbolic reflection on today’s America and its contradictions.

The project is part of HBA – “Human Beyond Appearances,” an ongoing collection of photographic projects focused on exploring the expressive and evocative potential of non-animated beings. The series includes Mila, the oversized mannequin (The Mila Project, 2014); Venus, the resin sculpture (The Venus Project); the digital, non-existing persons (The Algonauts, 2022); and, more recently, the scarecrows (Scarecrows, 2022).
