State of Mind

Rebelious Streak

Laser Etched Photo

For this project I carefully studied and reflected upon how I think and feel in certain situations. I used a collection of photos that I took throughout my last year of University and subsequently analysed and added meaning to them based upon my feelings towards them.
The photographs I have chosen to use in this project have come from my time in both Paris and New York, giving my work a strong urban feel. I am drawn to urban textures and I feel that in choosing these pieces it adds another layer to the meanings behind my work.
My main influence throughout this project has been Robert Rauschenberg as I have found myself relating to and adopting a large number of his working methods. It is clear to me that Rauschenberg has gone through his life continually meeting new people, experiencing new cultures and ultimately learning new methods and techniques to apply to his work; such experiences have given him cause to change his opinions and outlook leading to the production of some very contrasting work over the years.
