Hi, My Name is
'Hi My Name Is' is an exploration of fantasy and identity through self-portraiture. Constructed scenes present common stereotypes, fantasies and ideals. They exist only within the frames of the images, yet their familiarity invites us to attempt to place them and associate narratives as we view. The sense of attainability dissolves as we realise that they are constructs held together by performance. Yet are these constructs still preferable to reality? It is about both myself and society as a whole: our expectations and desires for the unreal and unattainable today, as we often lose reality in the chase for the fictional better life.
