Series of digitally altered photograph-based images. Realized as a part of “Visual Anarchy” art project for 23kg50lb Collective.
Statement of Intent
1. Break away from the rectangular cell that is the standard presentation of a picture.
2. Emphasize the printed image as a physical object despite its digital origins, as well as that the image is manipulated and manufactured despite its documentary photographic origins;
3. Suggest that no one particular point of view is absolutely right, our perception (and thus our process of forming an opinion) is always skewed, bent or tinted some way.
A note on Anarchy
To me, anarchy is an utopia where no one living soul has power over other living souls. Everyone is sovereign, equal and responsible for their own actions, as well as enlightened enough to acknowledge this. Even if unattainable in our present condition, such utopia is worth striving for.
