Sentimental/Semi-Mental:
Photographs have the power to trigger memories and emotions that are not always pleasant. Though there are photographs that are hard for us to look at, we still cannot part with them. Sometimes we find ways to hide, ignore, or destroy these kinds of emotional photographs. By manipulating the images that take on themes of love, family and youth I am attempting to resolve the conflict that lies between the image and viewer.

Inspired by Jason Lazarus’ project T.H.T.K (Too Hard To Keep) I have manipulated my images though the process of glitching (the manipulation if an images’ code). I am able to preserve the data of the image while distorting the content of the image. Though glitching have attainted an image that its multi-coloured, pixelated and is far from its original representation. By collaging these images and removing traces of its original subject matter I have made it easier to digest emotionally but visually assaulting to the eye.
