In her Poetic Space Manifesto project, Karla Guerrero’s work is highly influenced by the philosophical vanguard of Phenomenology (an approach that concentrates on the study of consciousness and the objects of direct experience), in the behavior of the gaze, the interactions of oneself between objects, spatial explorations in experiences of transience and absence: memory, loss, and void. She says her inspiration comes from everything she sees and reads; her influences are more from the process of thinking of the image as a way of seeing it, or to remain in a phenomenological experience with things.
Guerrero’s images included here directly relate to certain aspects of this philosophical visual approach, and explore her world with this in mind. The Poetics, an Instagram feed curated by Guerrero, also studies space through a phenomenological – poetic approach. The collaborative project can be found on Instagram under the username @poeticspacemanifesto
