Martha Naranjo Sandoval


Brooklyn-based filmmaker and visual artist from Mexico City.
Her work focuses on the materiality of image; in the difference between how time is portrayed in moving and still image; and in how images gain significance culturally.

She makes stereoscopic collages, light installations, multimedia installations, slideshows, and books. She works with different mediums using obsolete technology designed to remember. Most of her pieces start with Family Recordings (home videos, family albums, travel postcards), which she is interested in because it is a kind of vernacular photography that is important to whoever took it but not to a lot of other people; it is part accidental; it documents what the daily life of a place looks like at a certain time; and it is used to remember. Since materiality and experience are a big part of this work, the best way to experience it is standing in front of it.
