Inspiration: To show how people can blend in or show a great deal about themselves by what they wear, people can give impressions or provide a masquerade to hide their real selves due to people making assumptions on what they see. I have produced a series of three mirrors of the same size but revealing a different story each. I feel that this works well to give the viewer the impression of being different people when they stand directly in front of the mirror to look at the piece.
Title: Who do you see?
Description: When I started to expand on this idea to work with, I started researching other work but felt in the end that I had to get some of my own ideas out of my head. I liked the clothing created by Yinka Shonibare and can appreciate the quality of the work but more than that, it is so obvious that he was showing the opulence of the society that the clothing would have been made for. I then thought about the times that we live in now and how they have changed. Some of the most expensive, designer clothing can look very shabby by design and without the designer name plastered over it, not many people at all would know that the item had costs hundreds of pounds. Based on this, I chose to use the viewer themselves as the centre for all of the three works as they can use their own imaginations to decide for themselves who would wear the clothes and when, if not, or even if, themselves.
