Fracture: Representing Identity
Harris, Katya J
This document provides written support for the thesis exhibition, Fracture: Representing Identity. The body of work presented in the exhibition seeks to provide more accurate images of people, counter to the limiting representations saturating contemporary visual culture. By utilizing the visual element of fracture and focusing on the human body, the work I create serves several separate but related functions. First, creation of the works allows for a process of contemplation, during which I may reflect on my own developing ideas regarding personal identity in the current social and political climate. Second, the interactive nature of the work lets me share these ideas with a public audience. Lastly, this body of work serves as a platform from which to create a dialogue about identity and the responsibilities of image-makers who engage with representations of people, and topics at the forefront of today's identity politics.
