This is where my creativity holds no limits. I switch between sculptural and conceptual art, the possibilities are endless.

Mixed Media & Digital

D&AD Entry 2024

Unfortunately I didn't make it this year but I'm very proud of this project.

Upshot

/ˈʌpʃɒt/, noun - the final or eventual outcome or conclusion of a discussion, action, or series of events.

This is a collection of collages realised with parts of 1950's LIFE magazines. This process and the results speak on both a social and emotional level. Each piece is centered on a specific message instead of an abstract one.

Technique: Collage

Medium: Cutouts from original LIFE magazines and other vintage magazines, carefully glued to A3 paper.

Size: A3

Tension

Technique: Photography and Digital Editing

For this project I've worked on this brief with the 'Tension' word in mind. I've worked on my three photographs digitally with textures to portray everyday objects that for the average person does not issue much thought. The glasses have pins glued on them, the hairbrush has nails attached and the meal is made from a fork and a roll of construction steel wool material. For persons that are suffering of mental health, they could everyday tasks really difficult or even impossible to do depending on each case: starting the day by putting glasses on, combing the hair (doing personal care in general) and eating a meal. My submission focuses on the internal feeling of tension and stress that are associated with taking care of oneself from a struggling with mental health person's point of view.
