The aim of this piece is to generate a consciousness that, as a young generation, we have at times become too complacent with political and social issues. In the past, crises have sparked action. But now, with the abundance of social media and society's obsession with pop culture, action has been replaced by passive commentary and lethargic attitudes. The objects used in the photographs are intended to portray the evolution of pop culture and how it consumes society. Fashion plays into the narrative as it becomes the signifier of how creative and innovative we are as a young generation and with this we have the ability to come through these difficult times. In turn the fashion becomes the positive notion from the narrative.
