A Pile of Li_es: Social voyeurism vs private moments
This project began with the concept in mind of the seven deadly sins that are so well known, that it evolved to include materialism, consumerism and eventually to social voyeurism could be seen as inevitable.
To lay bare the materialistic way of life I chose to juxtapose this open, thoughtless unstructured imagery of modern life with archaic photographs depicting past scenarios that parallel actions but remains localised.
Being part of this modern culture, I wanted to expose the different aspects of the new age of technology and how it has so rapidly become a sociological platform. So quickly we have become desensitised to intrusive obscure invasions of our private lives, not accepted nor rejected. Ethically societal rules of old are being forgotten before new ones can be made. Morally, individual choices have taken precedence over traditional culture; greed, gluttony, envy, pride etc has come to the masses and is broadcast to anyone who will listen. Gone are the days of private memories and shared experiences; now voyeuristic visual supremacy takes precedence over narrative special moments.
