a note regarding the photos... / by laurel

This series was partly inspired by the mindset of the early 60’s, drawing influences from Pop art, Richard Hamilton, consumerism, Rosenquist’s F-111, and the rampant invasion of information into the American home in the twenty years following World War II. This era signified a loss of innocence, and in that loss, a greater need to insulate oneself from the harsher realities glaring in. Likewise, the images in this series explore the concept of culture as mediating (or insulating) the terms in which we experience events.
