visual communication practice



Description of idea

Describe your idea and concept of your work in relation to the festival outlines:

This image is a complex image that examines numerous ideas through the one image. Gender and societal images of women, communication, speech, obsolete writing technologies are some of the ideas that arise when looking at the image.

What kind of communication approach do you use?

I use various methods and approaches to question and subvert the communication tools we use.

What are in your opinion concrete benefits to the society because of your communication?

My work seeks to explore and examine various communication systems we utilize, raising important questions in how and what we communicate.

What did you personally learn from creating your submitted work?

This one image is important in that it is a complex and unstable image that continues to provoke. This provocation and instability is important within my work.

Why is your work, GOOD communication WORK?

The one image raises complex questions regarding images of gender, authority and speech through various information systems increasing in relevance through shifts and lapses in global communication systems.

Where and how do you intent do implement your work?

I would like to see this work as a billboard for this exhibition further conflating ideas and relations between advertising and conceptual art.

Did your intervention had an effect on other Media. If yes, describe the effect? (Has other media reported on it- how? Were you able to change other media with your work- how?)

Subfield description

My work examines the residue of language through various communication systems. From giant electronic message boards to artifacts from lapsed writing systems such as typewriters my work questions our bodies in relation to communication systems. This body of work has been shown at such places at DAC in New York, Frame 301, beverley, MASS and several artist run centers in Canada, and in periodicals such as poiesis a journal of the arts and communication current volume twelve, 2010: the poietics of alterity.
