De Novo translates to something new arising from something old. I'm offering a new context for the classical imagery, and exploring various contemporary themes including isolation, and the disposable society today.
The digital camera is a metaphor for our disposable society, often used with casual indifference, resulting in the stored images never being viewed again. A hooded top: worn by so many today, they are mass produced in their millions, many discarded in a relatively short time. Contrast this with the 17th century, when everything was made by hand and consider the longevity of a painting from that era, which is treasured and passed down over centuries.
