Where Will I Be From is an exhibition and film centered around the intersections of generational grief and technology. I documented domestic locations connected to my family across the Great Plains. This on-site photo documentation was then used to create photogrammetric renderings of these locations and their structures, recorded in the open-source CAD software Blender. Together, these familial places, separated by hundreds of miles, were digitally compiled to make one collective world. The aesthetic of this project connects the visual languages of Southern Gothic and Low-Poly Video games. The Gothic nature exposes an isolated decaying presence within a rural landscape. The desolate countryside presents the physical world as dying; however, the digital world serves as a space for resurrection. Personal and private historical collections are conceptually critical to the development of this world. Using obituaries, interviews with my grandmother, and land records, I compiled a list of locations to document. This project inputs a nonlinear narrative set in the rural Plains, containing a history that transcends personal experience and speaks to cross-generational mourning.
