‘Indisposed Exorbitance’ materializes identity as a deranged apparatus that leaks the innermost desires of society. The artwork visualizes reproductions of information dispersed from the media to make people feel happy and successful. The internet tailors an intimate browsing experience based on what we click, type, and buy. Even though privacy is obsolete, we can obtain anything we want with our fingertips and a credit card. This exhibition mirages the excess extravagance placed upon the public, in order to anesthetize our behavior.
An electronic noise envelops us as we live closely packed together in a society of constant presentation and upkeep. My work amplifies this noise - bluntly asking its audience to reconsider. Acting as a threshold of consciousness - my work is a process that moves the viewer from one way of thought to another. As the rest of society is passively choked by the man; living in repetition through stereotypes and false realities- a new generation will assemble. Constantly probed to post and comment on every product, place, and emotion we encounter, I want the work to transcend these pressures, and reconnect with reality. Working in an excessive compulsive, I react to these human calamity as a personal outlet.
