mash up, 2017

This artwork was featured in Fount Magazine for their Mash Up project. Issue 02 focused on what it means to »connect«

Participants were randomly assigned a piece of art created by another artist, and asked to reinterpret in their own artistic medium.

The original illustration by Anja Bartelt provoked thoughts about how today's technology connects us and strengthens our social relationships while also producing feelings of intense anxiety. By collaging images from old, dusty magazines this reinterpretation shows that these feelings are anything but new. Every advancement in communication - from radio to television to the internet - has both empowered and challenged us.
