Commodity Thrives 

This is an illustration of some of the more popular and high selling shoes on resale sites as well as classics like uggs and socks. This is a comment on how we consume these things like French fries when they are in style and how quick we are to abandon them when they are out. I will admit I own a fair amount of these shoes, but I am interested in how they are made and the background behind the design and would wear them even when criticized. Though I am sure these may just be excuses for owning them. I like to look at this side of consumerism and how it can almost become an addiction in which a consumer is being consumed. Why are some consumers spending a years worth of saving on a one ticket item, especially one which is worn on their feet?

Everlasting Corruption


These polaroids were taken by an old polaroid camera which had gone through an airport security x-ray machine. When a polaroid is put through an x-ray it is corrupted. Unaware these particular polaroids had been corrupted I had taken a picture of me in a supreme hoodie. The way the photograph had cut out my face and only captured the brand name felt as though what most people visualize when someone wears a brand name so publicly. People see a brand and one can become a faceless brand when wearing it. I printed these images on metal to take something fleeting and temporary like a polaroid and made it more than permanent by printing it on metal. 


Corrupted society

This was a continuation of the above work. I was taking pictures of my light which says Supreme on it with corrupted polaroids to see what the outcome might be. These are the scanned in versions of them. The bottom right one saying "me" really stood out to me considering how much me can come up in our conversations and thoughts.

Corrupted Times

This was a different version of corruption with polaroids. I used a program which allows you to play with the sound of an image and then it gives you a product of glitches in which you were technically in control of, but not fully. I made a small series of these as well as one which you can see at the bottom on the second image. I printed on a sheet of paper multiple times with different polaroid scans.
