Fingerprints make up our identity. When thinking about identity I looked at the things that make us who we are, Fingerprints came to mind. Each one represents our individuality with its intricate design. No two are alike. Identity is an important part of our lives and is a crucial part of who we are. I wanted to represent this in my images, showing the importance of our identity and the different ways it can be displayed. The colour red takes a big impact in my images. Our blood is red, which makes up our DNA. I used polaroid to capture my images, as they are something you can touch, and your fingerprint is left behind. The fingerprint is identity in its simplest form, it is the most effective way of proving someone’s identity. I was fascinated by the thought of there being 7 billion people in the world and no fingerprint is the same. My work showcases a small part of this. My six individuals all have a fingerprint personal to them, no 2 are even slightly similar. Whilst our physical identity can be changed and manipulated, a fingerprint will always stay constant. Each image in my six conveys how we are the same but different. We all have hands, we all have fingers prints, but we all have differences. The differences are what make us individuals.
This project explores memories and nostalgia with a modern approach, within this series of work I’ve revisited locations from my childhood and created 3D environments that are capable of being traversed with the use of augments and virtual reality. As I explore these themes and topics, I let the viewer engage with my memories in a different way.
Thicker Than Water
Throughout this body of work I have brought together visual material from my family photo album, as well as my own photographic practice and a mixture of visual material that has had an impact on my life however small. I have brought this diverse range of imagery together through collage, in doing so creating new narratives out of the once historical work by exploring the idea of memory in my family history and identity through image use and production.
