Abstract

The Veil is a print media exhibition exploring the politics surrounding internet and internet related technologies and how they shape our identity. All of the works shift within a satirical and enigmatic visual language which accumulates to form a critique of our online habits and rituals. My work is driven by questions surrounding digital identity, privacy, data mining, narcissism, and commodity fetishism. How is the internet changing us as people and consumers? What are the repercussions of frivolously sharing private information online? And how are new government bills affecting our freedom online? Gallery visitors will encounter the hand-pulled print in a variety of forms. The first room provides a dedicated space for my mural installation (figure 1), an immersive and accumulative work comprised of four hundred screen prints and relief prints. The backroom of the gallery provides a space for twenty three works on paper (figure 2). These prints are more reactionary and trace a more specific lineage in regards to my research.
