FROM GERMAN KAPUTT: 1. Utterly finished 2. Defeated or destroyed 3. Unable to function. LEBLANCSTUDIOS generates its discourse by starting through linguistics to disposable objects like a lighting bulb, self destructive attitudes, useless company slogans, genocide, white-collar crimes, fake friendships, propaganda, and war. From colors pink to black, prints of relevant news, archive material, and slogans the collection represents the human disintegration. The name of the collection comes from the album Kaputt by Destroyer.
Singular Unity 2017
Singular Unity is based on the concept of technological singularity, or the way in which everything converges in one place due to the large amount of information that we are processing nowadays. We are highly connected and surrounded by information that we are constantly processing via our technological devices, resulting in a dilution or loss of cultural identity, leaving us all in a state of some form of “cut-and-paste”. Singular unity is made up of two conversations: the first is about the way in which technology affects us and is changing our perception of time, while the second focuses on class-based stereotypes in the Dominican Republic.
