I have recently been developing my practise to critique the language of the image within contemporary society. The visual image is a language limited like any other to the social constructs of a community.
My practise is heavily influenced by the political landscape of our time and the societal issues we are facing in the Western world surrounding the context and placement of information and how we define truth. The platform of ‘alternative facts’ resonates with my theoretical inspiration, for example, Baudrillard's Simulacra. I am investigating into how parallel ideas of reality can translate into power and control depending on how they are placed and disseminated to its audience. I want to address the visual image to question the ethics and authenticity of the ‘storyteller’ - the concept of the authorial voice - who’s telling the story and who’s story is it to tell and what for?
