What Am I Like?

romestatusLike the Emperors and leaders of past times, we like to project a carefully constructed identity to our public rather than our real self. Only now, we can all do it, we don’t need to commission an artist to do the job for us. We use the tools available to us and we carefully sculpt out the self portrait we want to project.

I have been investigating the trend in our culture today which requires us to be photo ready and the self obsession this brings with it. Perceived realities are getting somewhat confused with the realities we are likely to experience, as society is influenced by and taking inspiration from sources such as celebrity culture and reality television instead of learning to be true to themselves.
My selfie represents a moment of reflection, breath of reality,  a rare half a second of solitude in a society in which we are put under constant pressure to be perfect.

Just so…..

Because life just is……

Happy

Friends

Drag

Unselfish

Reality is that life consists of rules and boundaries
