Artist Statement:


    The project, which fuses staged studio and street portraiture and archives (newspaper headlines scans), explores, investigates and subverts some of the defining feature of memes. The photos can either be seen as Prints or Animated GIFs. Moreover, this part of a broader art project, “E-Go-Better?” which explores protest as an art form by using Social Media and Installation Art. The underlying idea is to question the effectiveness of ‘virtual’ protest by investigating the possibilities that modern technology present to ordinary people.
