Negotiating with the machine
This is the last piece of art I was ever assigned to complete. My class was challenged to create a piece based on a call and response between mechanical production and human experience. Titled Negotiating with the machine, this piece demonstrates how computers and technology have become so integrated into our lives that the area between reality and cyberspace and the metaphoric location of the mind has never been greyer. The nudity in this piece represents our vulnerability, submission and reliance on the machine.

Using a single pencil this anatomy study depicts the unrealistic representations of the human body. This piece is displayed in such a way to remind us of the idealistic proportions we are sometimes expected to portray.
Size300mm x 200mm
MaterialsGraphite on paper
Using line alone to render a creative illusionistic space, bold colours to build focus and both of these aspects together to subvert and affirm spatial assumptions about flatness and illusion, I created a sublime scene to elevate thoughts on perspective.
