Identity Constructed and Complex: MECHANICAL MONTAGE: Images

It is based around the idea that identity is constructed from the information we consume. Be it the people we surround ourselves with, or the object we use, the books we read and the films we watch. Which is communicated well by Stuart Hall.

I collaborated with my girlfriend Sam to find archival information of both me and her; and present it inside a passport. I scanned in the pages of my passport and stuck the images on with glue. I also got rid of both me and Sam from all of the images by removing them on photoshop, Here are the images…

This work communicates that it is about identity because of its presentation in a passport. By cutting out the individual it shows the information that has helped share our identity.
