Krista Jahnke | A Stable World That Will Last Forever
A Stable World That Will Last Forever is a constructed portrait of Vancouver by Krista Jahnke (’09) in collaboration with HCMA | AIR displayed at the Olympic Village Station until April 2015.
The photo montage is a composition using recognizable architectural elements in Vancouver organized into a new configuration, which allows the viewer to imagine our city within a new landscape and context. By rearranging line, space and forms that communicate the power of architecture within the environment and how people interact with both, the piece is a starting point that invites viewers to envision Vancouver from a different perspective while moving through the city.
Krista Jahnke is an award winning photographer and multi-disciplinary designer. She weaves her interests in photography and architecture to explore the architectural landscape — how we populate, circulate through and understand it. Along with her BFA, Photography, from Emily Carr, Jahnke holds a Bachelor of Architectural Studies from Carleton University.
About HCMA | AIR Hughes Condon Marler Architects (HCMA) Artist-In-Residence (AIR) program was developed by the firm in 2014 as part of a broad strategy to examine the potential of the practiceâs work to contribute to social sustainability goals. HCMA | AIR is meant to stimulate discussion and challenge preconceptions about the limits of architectural practice. The program invites artists to investigate the interface between the public realm and people through an exploration of the boundaries between architecture and the artistâs creative field.
