Photoprint on Textile

Photographic portraits of Northern Moroccan tribal women in traditional clothing discovered by Claudia Caviezel in the Ethnographic Museum of Chefchaouen provided her with inspiration for digital interpretations printed on textiles. Caviezel photographed the originals which were unintentionally altered by glowing circles of neon light reflections on the glass. The effect created a science fiction aura while it also resembled burn circles that occur in pre-digital film when cinematic film is improperly loaded or sticks during cinema projection. The burn circles from the heat of the projector lamp become mesmeric memories of images long gone.
