Artist Statement

 

I am many characters, against my will, sometimes. There are stable personalities, naturally made, and other socially formed characters that are changeable and temporary. I call the latter “Chameleon” identities. By “Camouflage”, I mean the psychological process of assimilating oneself to the specific social situation; it is a subjective moment caused by one’s choice, not limited to the original meaning of “visual avoidance of observation”. Specifically, I am concentrating on the directive and protean identities created by the activity of consuming.
