Conformity is defined as matching beliefs and behaviours to what is perceived as normal in social groups. Conformity ranges from small groups to entire societies and may result from unconscious influences or direct social pressure. This apathetic self-portrait looks at the resulting issue of conformity within our modern society, inviting viewers to attempt to engage with the blank, expressionless figure they see before them. I aim to provoke viewers into questioning their own levels of conformity in everyday life, as we all conform one way or another for fear of rejection. Within the wallpaper print, I appear to disappear. Faded and unmovable from my wall, I have become aware of the choices we have, but with nothing to choose from.
