'a fleshy self : consciousness'

After alot of stress, tears, sweat and really late nights this is where my work ended up. These are images from my Graduating Exhibition. They combined everything I had worked with over the past three years and I am still so happy with the result. I knitted the objects and adornment and then photographed them on a body (my own) to contrast the softness/warmth of the knitting with the 'unattractive' parts of the body that society may view as flaws. I wanted to momentarily beautify these aspects, draw attention to them. Once again these images were printed large scale (my images are always more effective this way) to overwhelm the viewer.
