dc.descriptionCapstone contains the artist's statement, a list of works, images of works and video(s).
dc.description.abstractThe artist's statement: Art is a method of communication, a way of starting conversations and drawing light to certain aspects of society. My goal is to do just that; my art is a vehicle to start discussions about social justice issues, especially those concerning gender and race. These can be difficult topics to approach and sometimes there just are not the right words to start the conversation. "What Was She Wearing" deals with the topics of street harassment and slut shaming. Women endure these intrusions on the body every single day and are blamed for any resulting violence inflicted on them. These are real issues that need to be addressed and in an age of technology and social media, it only seems fitting to utilize those same platforms. I use photo and video editing software and appropriate pop culture imagery to create my messages. I draw from personal understanding and I use my body as well as other's testimonials and examples in the form of YouTube videos to demonstrate the narrative of the complexities of choosing how you will be judged each day. Either you are a slut or a prude. A tease or a skank. A virgin or a whore. Sometimes you are all of it, but it is still never enough. There is still always something to be threatened with. These dichotomies guide women's actions into question every day, and work to constrain the idea of choice. It can be a matter of life or death, making the choices irrelevant. Do I wear what I want or do I keep myself safe? Will I be safe in either case? Exploring new techniques and mediums I hope to continue learning about my world in a positive light, even though the subject matter may not always be the most pleasant. As an artist, I aim for self discovery through a socially conscious lens that will begin a dialogue where there may not have been opportunity previously.
