Activation – Digital Collage

Artist’s Statement:

This modern approach to collage explores the polarization in the US following the 2016 presidential election. Using “found” images from online media sources of the alt-right, Antifa, gun control, and various protests, this digital rendering of the current political landscape and the clashes surrounding free speech depicts the fragmentation, confusion, and emotion activating a nation afraid of losing its freedoms. Activation functions in the gray area, offering no resolution to the uncertainty many feel in the United States, especially as we move into the midterm elections.
