ARTIST STATEMENT

 

 

I keep returning to the way in which social media dictates perception and representation of ourselves, particularly women.

 

How do I represent myself / how should I represent myself / how do others represent themselves / how do others representation of themselves impact my own representation of myself / why do we engage / how do we engage / what is the aim

 / does it matter?

 

I have used a reoccurring motif of a central line. This line could draw attention to the no-mans-land of social media. Closer inspection reveals the imperfections in symmetry. These imperfections question the distance between the real and the virtual individual; how one might, or might not, reflect the other.

 

 

 
And the air was full of Thoughts and Things to Say. But at times like these, only the Small Things are ever said. Big Things lurk unsaid inside.
— Arundhati Roy The God of Small Things
