WE ALL DESERVE
...a life of peace
...a life of freedom



This is my MINOR project I did for my BFA degree in Graphic Design called human INSIDE. Currently on exhibit in Barbados. All photos and concepts are original and done by myself.

The set up is an installation piece, where the images are suspended one after the other, it is meant to be an interactive campaign where people walk through, observe and see 7 phases of discrimination unfolding. To the back of the images are quotes which conveys the message of the each photo essay. The images presented in the series are meant to be interpreted personally and ambiguously. There is a video at the end which shows the transitions from one image to the other to relate the story.

Please share it and spread the message of anti-discrimination and let others know the ugliness of discrimination, we can all work together and put an end to this!

Series



Concept
human INSIDE is an anti-discrimination campaign which aims to raise awareness of discrimination and hopefully reduce discrimination as much as possible.

Instead of using people, inanimate objects became the subjects of the photo essays. Each essay tells a story that relates to results of discrimination or how it unfolds.

This piece is based on the metaphor of the want for people to control and get rid of the unknown 'alien'. Basically the control and delete keys are the oppressors, and usually when people discriminate they do it out of fear and more than likely try to get rid of what they cant accept, so the escape key is the victim try to get away to get it's freedom. Hope that makes sense to you.

you're mostly welcome - honestly astounding piece.

may I ask (even though very often the interpretation IS left to us - viewers) - did you intentionally use computer keyboard keys in this series as a metaphor for new ways of internet based social interactions... or is it just me? :D
Reply
:iconfamz:
FaMz Featured By Owner May 21, 2010  Professional General Artist
haha, it was intentionally left as a personal experience, because these are installation pieces, and the background music from the video adds to the atmosphere when you walk through to take them all in :P

but it doesn't stem entirely on the internet based interactions as much as your mind is wandering to :P it was more the metaphor of the want for people to control and get rid of the unknown 'alien', but when I kept looking back at it, it did make me think of the future and the internet society :)

interesting idea - where is is exhibited? if still?

thanks for answering :) I was almost sure you'll just leave it to my interpretation... which is fine... although somewhat annoying usually :) I far prefer discussing ideas than having to sit with my very own for eternity :D

hmm.. racism again? of some sort? a notion very much at hand in my society - where I am among the few white-skinned 'aliens' (even though - the common thing for racism is apparently to work the opposite way around)...

well - internet with its easiness of making and deleting new contacts was what came to my mind first (especially as - hey - that's what we're doing at the moment). And - there's always the escape button. even though - recently used more and more scarcely...

It was on exhibition in Barbados, but it's no longer on exhibit. I finished about a week ago.

haha nothing is wrong with knowing the intent behind the piece, I don't mind explaining once a person asks, the quotes with them are to help you along to what concept I have for each piece.

yeah this once is basically an entire summary of it all, but it's like in reverse, if you see the video, instead of the escape key being clobbered, it shows the reverse of it.

lol true
