No Time For Romance
This work has centred around the experiences of being a woman in modern society, particularly focusing on modern day dating. The nature of the cattle-market-like swiping either left or right for the ‘matched’ stamp of approval, adds to the pressures felt by women to look a certain way. The series No Time For Romance depicts honest self portraits contradicting the type of imagery that is typically seen on Tinder and challenge the ideology of what a socially acceptable, self curated series of images look like for a dating profile. Mimicking the motion of swiping left and right on Tinder, this series is exhibited on a touchscreen kiosk which viewers interact with by swiping for the next image.
