"Set the House on Fire"
These artworks were made with carbon soot - think of what is melting the ice caps, killing the ozone, and giving me cancer while making these. The backgrounds are corporate ad posters I removed from billboards. This series was inspired by sculptures of past societies and the consumption of visual culture. The subjects' pictures were appropriated by invading strangers' Facebook pages. These pieces meant to raise questions on corporate behemoths considered "too big to fail", the fragility of our environment, and the invasion of our private information, that is sold to corporations and spearheaded by social media. They are a portrait of the 21st century in both message and medium.
