Do You Like Music
The semiotics of adolescence are as just as they are fraudulent. This body of work examines the physical flattening of imagery and text found within popular music culture iconographies and fan ephemera, and likewise, how this is translated and transformed via desire, humor and being brought up in the geographical location of the Midwestern. Do You Like Music is a declarative as much as it is a question: it is the the graduation from youth and into the application of self awareness; an awareness that knows not to forget its roots, i.e. confident slang.
