My artwork facilitates others to participate in the arts. It provides others with a tool as simple as a camera to foster their personal creativity and curiosity. At its core, this piece is meant to expose the simple nature and purpose of the Internet. The Internet has long been used as a medium for sharing and collaboration. Similarly this project illuminates the simple nature of the Internet by vividly reflecting on the purpose of working together in order to create something far more beautiful then it could have been without the desire to work with one another. At the very center of this project is a genuine desire to bring happiness and curiosity. My inspiration comes from technology’s ability to take others from day-to-day experiences. Instead I wanted to use disposable cameras, which readily prevents immediate gratification and furthermore releases the constant desire of immediacy when it comes to photographs with up to date technology. It is a piece that is framed by a desire, to share, create and inspire.
