New Order Limited Edition Prints
New Order is a Series of 20 unique AI-generated Column Capitals. New Order was produced in collaboration with Nicholas Cecchi and created using the Midjourney web app.
This limited addition collection uses the Classical Column Orders as a point of departure to playfully explore what happens when History, Nature, and Technology interact. Each column design combines elements from flora and fauna with the established forms of classical columns.
Each print is unique and will only be sold once. Once sold, the listing will be taken down.

Flora Urbana was a solo show at IdiomArt in Cuenca Ecuador. The Collection imagines an alternate history or potential future where the design of classical and neo-classical architectural ornamentation was intentionally adapted to represent local and endemic plants as the style spread throughout the colonial world. Both fantasy and commentary, the collection deals with the complicated history of globalization, the value of local traditions, biodiversity, and cultural patrimony. High quality giclée prints of this collection are available through Saatchi.
