Anica Shpilberg

My Avataraty series are recreations or
embodiments of anonymous figures (mannequins)
into which I endow them with human or divine
qualities of a God.
I want to create a sense of the existence of a
powerful spiritual presence by emphasizing the
personification of optimist and the power of hope.
This series utilizes advances in technology that
inspire my creativity and pushes the boundaries of
where I can take it, giving the mannequins a new
life.
