Idealism. 2017.

Collection of appropriated images, Digitally distorted and collaged. 

This collection attempts to explore the ideas within the commercialized aspects of today's society, and how in some form or another, most people become sucked into some sort of culture or subculture or discourse community. From this people tend to idealize certain figures to a great extent. Knowing this, but also realizing that these figures are still just everyday people that have their own personal lives, perspectives and emotions, that most people will never get to truly experience and interact with, causing most people to be left with a generalized sense of idealism placing said figure on a pedestal, but then not knowing truly enough information for the standards said figure is held to, leaving a sense dissonance within idealism.
