SpineOut : October - November2016
October - November 2016 ArtSmart Hannah, Year 12 Clayfield College Clayfield Qld Cocoon: Metamorphose - Nature vs. Nurture The Human Puppet 2016 Digital and Mixed Media Installation Am I my own person, society’s baby or Mama’s little girl? How do personalities grow? Does the cocoon I form control whoIamandwhatIbecome?AmI just a human puppet? Am I trapped or free? Have I been shielded or have I been exposed? Do I like it and do I have a choice? I made this artwork because I think it is important to stop and think to ask ourselves the question; are we in control? I believe it is important to be aware of how our surroundings subconsciously affect us. As a young person I feel social media, trends on iTunes and fads and fashions presented to us are subtly influential and encourage conformity. I don’t think this is necessarily bad but it is important to be aware of these influences so we can make informed choices to maintain our individuality.
