Abstract/Artist Statement

There are many ways to define a person and one is through a consumerist’s standpoint. The brands and products we personally trust and support can say a lot about our identities. In this series, I have taken three fictitious individuals and present ed them with a series of items they each consume. Each has a poster for a cause or event they support and a music album they enjoy. Following those two items are three logos: one for something they use, one for a publication they read, and lastly one for a food product they eat. I strove to present a diverse set of people, which was very difficult since I could only profile three. I chose characters that would transcend stereotypes and at the same time be interested in things one would not expect upon first impressions. I eventually settled for the three you see here. I present their photo along with their name, age, and home state. These people are purely of my invention. They are characters I have developed over the years and I created their profile photos by using pictures from the Internet and compositing them. Similarly, I invented all of the brands; there are no such companies, organizations, bands, or publications out there.
