Awarded as the Second Best of Show in the 2014 OSF Fine Arts Competition, and Third Place in the Yeiser Art Center's Through the Lens competition, one image in this series has been fully completed as a 36" square wall installation. Intended to mimic current pop technology, this nearly monochromatic print is encased within a 1” block of clear acrylic. Facial identity is hidden in much the same way one’s face may be obscured with a tablet device interrupting the view. The symmetry is strong, yet organically imperfect (notice alignment of the chin, reflection in the bowl, freckles, and slight unevenness in the shoulders).
This artwork offers a reminder to recognize the uniqueness within each of us and to remain mindful of our relationship with technology.
