Sionainne Costello (°1995, Australia) is a practicing photographer and videographer, currently living in Melbourne. Her work explores the relationship between the land, urban spaces and ourselves as humans.
Ever since she was small, Costello has been fascinated by the essential unreality of the universe. What starts out as yearning soon manifests into distress and crisis, leaving only a sense of failing and thus cyclically births a newfound spark for creation.
As Above, Almost Below: Caught Between the Stars and the Salton Sea attempts to establish a link between natural surface reality and that imagined by its conceiver. The works focus on realisations that question our existence and our physical connection to natural beauty. The viewer is left with a testament to the inaccuracies of our condition and lack of self-awareness as a planet.
