Using layer upon layer of photographs shot in various European capitals, visual artist Anastasia Savinova combines elements of architectural forms to craft visually stunning large scale collages. The series titled "Genius Loci" reveals the dozen of associations triggered by various places. According to the ancient Romans, the “genius loci” was the protective spirit of a dwelling. In contemporary usage, "genius loci" usually refers to a location's distinctive atmosphere. Savinovas's crisply composed collages are more than a medium of contrasting doors, windows, and roof lines, they explore the structure of life in their connection with the land and the spirit of the place.
