David Nugent

Rhubarb

Through my work I explore identity and escapism. I question the extent that appropriated characteristics and performed roles play in our understanding of the self and others. To investigate this I set up scenarios for play. I often meet strangers on-line through acting/modeling websites; I provide them with clothing for dress-up, dialogue from their favorite TV shows, songs - and photograph the resulting performance. To further exaggerate the fantasy nature of my work I utilize techniques associated with commercial photography, such as airbrushing, and often appropriate images from various sources of mass media. I aim to draw out and question the extent that we use mass media as a source for escapism, personality formation, and cultural understanding.
