Kara Vorabutr (b. 1996, Los Angeles)
Growing up in a time where the art of crafting were declining in favor of the rise in digital technology, I was drawn to more traditional mediums such as shooting film, playing with found objects and foraging for obscure foliage to make something of beauty. The prospect of making a career out of my own authentic visions is what drives me. In my opinion, creating makes daily life less mundane and my creations could make someone else's less as well. What constantly fascinated me is that we as humans all perform the same daily routines to survive, yet every culture is a rich gem to learn about and explore with our eyes. Beauty for me is a warm feeling and I find beauty in pockets of natural light, negative space, along with balance and chance in timing. Self-progression and quiet individualism in my vision is what I document into my visual diary. My body of work and style is based on creating ambiance and capturing human-to-surrounding interactions in colors, installations and photographs to make significant again the joys of everyday life.
