In ‘The Portfolio of…’ I give you, the photographer/ designer, a chance to share your work with the world. Everyone likes to get some attention for their works, and we’re here to help. Submit your portfolio to us and I’ll try to publish it. Today it’s time to show you the work of Zak Helenske.
About Zak Helenske: I react to the constant flux of industrial entropy, creative syntropy, and the cyclical tendencies of society and nature alike. Decay feeds new potentials in all facets of life. Using cast iron, raw and fired clay, and found objects, I aim to harness these lost forms of released energy. In their moment of vulnerability, these very different materials react with similar chaotic physical tendencies and become reflective of one another. Similarly, when social structures find themselves exposed to dilapidation and ruin, patterns repeat themselves. Versatility, adaptation, and instinct fall to decay and submit in exhaustion to wait for new purpose. I seek the nuance in this submission and the forced simplification of life after potential.
