Tamed by Spectacle, the Opaqueness of images was my first foray into the idea of repeating ideas and patterns as a diminishing the warning that they present. How logos and iconography can be side by side with warnings and fears. How a nuclear warning surrounded by other depictions should diffuse it into something desirable instead of something that invokes fear.  The exhibition creating a space of warnings that were attractive and distracting from the message formed a foundation for some of the themes I have developed over the years.

Mass Media has become a type of collage. Too many channels have surfaced and people tend to build their own collage that leads them through numerous other channels. The Image-flooded metropolitan area are filled with spectacles has raised up the general populations expectations to its maximum. The magnificence, lavish colours and provocative narratives in the Commercials, News photos in the streets and online always present to us with shocking images with more stimulus than before. Therefore, the public lives in an oblivion built around them that fools them into the world inside the shiny neon and images in the internet and away from the reality they actually live in. Under such circumstance, it seems that the general population are in pursuit of their own visual desires rather than leading a life, process a thought with originality and creativity and realize the disparity between their reality and the artificial world.
