I discovered Valeriya Volkova through somewhat unconventional means: her art was shared on Reddit, where I saw it over the summer of 2013. Since then, I've constantly referenced her in my research and I love watching her release new pieces. I use her art for the wallpaper on my cellphone just so it's always with me and quick to access. I was hesitant to use any appropriation in my collage at first, but my composition has begun calling for a house, and nobody makes houses cooler than Valeriya's.
This cityscape of hers is the source of the house I decided to use in my digital collage.
