Julia’s collage is a series of small silhouettes that combine the evolution of machines, animals, flags, weaponry, and technology. The “old and new” of technology and machinery are used to show both the differences and the consistencies in development over time. Julia positions these hybrid creatures at different distances and in awkward situations to create an unknown relationship. The “stage” setting in the window mimics an environment in which the viewers become the audience.
