Popular Culture

In this series of photo manipulations, I want to show the obsession we have with popular culture. I slightly altered the facial features without changing the face shape, body or clothes, to give it a disturbing  look. The eyes are widened and the nose and mouth are small, resembling those of manga characters. The  eyes are also widened to show the massive intake of information. We become so obsessed with something,  that we end up becoming or believing we are what we consume. I think this idea works better as a series  than if it was just one image because it emphasizes that it is a mass problem, not an individual one. My aim is  to create even more of these to fill up a whole wall, so that it is almost viral. This will be intimidating for the viewer.
