Abstract

In my art work photography is both subject and medium: I produce photographs in response to photographs in popular visual culture, particularly advertising. Interventions into the commercial visual landscape include work on posters and billboards shown in Cardiff (2014/5) and London (2016). Consumer examines the influence of consumer culture on the visual landscape. I buy advertising spaces and fill them with posters that use the tropes commonly found in adverts, however, my posters encourage viewers to think about the contradictions of capitalist consumption rather than compel them to buy something. They appear among adverts on social networking sites and behave abnormally.
