Private Identity: John Lennon

Information

Face is an important part of human body, I created Japanese pattern design or  oriental cultural statue photo using human face photo, I used various photos of famous people who have strong characteristics. First, I made them into white and black images and then I reconstructed these images by using photos with various motifs as materials like that a sculpture is constructed by clay. This process allows for the identity of these figures to change in various ways from their original images due to the mixture of the originals and various motifs.

With these artworks, I endeavor to reveal the fragility of private identity, especially It’s cognition and remembrance, which is a serious danger in the digital society we live in.
