For this project I wanted to create a visual piece based around the archetypes created by Carl Jung and bring them into the 21st Century. As the digital world is beginning to take over our lives I thought it would appropriate for their to be an archetype to be called 'the digital' because the digital world is becoming an integral part of our beings and it is everywhere around us.
This piece is made up of 2 posters stuck to a light box in order to reflect the bottom poster. The reasoning behind having 2 posters is that the one on top is the digital realisation of the archetypes forming a person. The bottom poster is made by hand by writing with charcoal, this poster is intended to represent the physical world and it is getting left behind in pursuit of the digital world. When the light is off you only see the front poster but when it is turned on you see both , this is to shine a light on the issue and to give a warning that the digital world is becoming more prominent in everyday life.
(As with my video piece, this is inspired by the works (film and artworks) of David Lynch) Read Less
