This photostory reimagines the mythological trope characters and follows the classic path of the adventure of the hero. Many-faced guardians at the gates to the unknown world, the supernatural aid, the hero in denial of his destiny, the beast, the goddess, and the shapeshifter- no matter what appearance they take they are always here. This time, at the dawn, gracefully frozen in a baroque light. For this project, I collaborated with young dutch designers to bring my vision to life.

“Federmesser utilizes her expertise in 3D scanning to create characters that are reminiscent of fragile, delicate strings of light. Pulling away from the suspected model of guardians at the gates of an unknown world, and the supernatural antagonists who aid the hero to his greater destiny; Federmesser cultivates an alternate storyline. “Wayfinders” was conceptualized and executed during the peak of the Covid-19 pandemic during this summer, which posed a creative challenge in terms of collaboration. Elizaveta joined forces with young artists and designers who were new in the industry, bringing fresh perspectives to her narrative.”
