MY PERSONAL WORK

THIS GALLERY DISPLAYS A SMALL COLLECTION OF MY OWN PERSONAL ARTWORK. THE PIECES I HAVE CREATED REPRESENT IDENTITY. THE PHOTOGRAPHY IS IMPRESSIONIST WORK WHICH REPRESENTS THE FACT THAT THE INTERNET AND MEDIA CAN TAKE AWAY OUR OWN INDIVIDUAL IDENTITIES. ESPECIALLY THE USE OF SOCIAL NETWORKING SITES WHERE WE ARE ONLY COMMUNICATING WITH INDIVIDUALS OVER A SCREEN RATHER THAN FACE TO FACE. WITH THE GROWTH OF THE INTERNET IT IS NOW HARD TO RECOGNISE INDIVIDUAL PERSONALITIES WHICH IS WHY I HAVE USED WATER AND THE USE OF PAINT TO DISTORT MY MODELS FACES AND MAKE THEM ‘UNRECOGNISABLE’. IN MY OPINION WE ARE ALL NOW BEING TRANSFORMED INTO IDENTICAL CYBER PERSONALITIES, WHERE WE TALK IN THE SAME LANGUAGE, DRESS THE SAME AND ACT THE SAME. FOR ME THIS IS PRIMARILY DOWN TO THE MEDIA. THE IMAGE WHERE I HAVE LAYERED LOGOS OVER MY MODELS FACE REPRESENTS HOW SOCAL NETWORKING SITES OUR SLOWLY ENGULFING OUR PERSONALITIES BY DEMOLISHING TRADITIONAL FACE TO FACE COMMUNICATION WHICH I BELIEVE CONTRIBUTES TO SHAPING OUR INDIVIDUAL IDENTITIES AND PERSONALITIES.
