Bethany De Forest

At the Art Academy of Utrecht, she started making installations of surreal worlds and recorded those photographically. She wants to create the feeling that these sets are life-size and that you can actually walk around in them. Pinhole-photography was the best way to generate this feeling. In her unusual and fairylike worlds she takes com- mon, small objects out of context and scale, resulting in immense spaces and metamorphosed realities. Bethany has been active as a visual artist, photographer, designer, VJ and art director, had many exhibits and published numerous works.
