This video was created by means of media appropriation. My objective was to create a scene in which the imagery corresponds to the contrasting emotion of the intended feeling, as to portray the controversy of mass media vs. public agenda.
My objective with this video was to create a non-traditional, surrealist narrative. Using only samples of my own collected footage, I attempted to portray the struggle of man vs. nature as a sort of surreal ballad.
Using a variety of brightly colored (and wonderfully scented) soaps, I attempted to capture the laws of nature in the form of a temporary sculpture, showing both the self-destruction and the recreation of natural life.
This digital collage was created using 20 online stock images, each of which contained something deemed “beautiful” by a modern general public opinion. My objective with this piece was to relate two period ideals of beauty using color, content and form: the Classical-era ideal, which focused on the form and the anatomy of the human figure, and the modern ideal, which focuses on the exterior looks and internal moods of the same figure.
I created these two photos as an image set entitled Forbidden Fruits. Using these images, I attempted to express both the irony and the double standards present in human sexuality, using both historical and moral ideals as examples.
