BA (Hons) Interactive Arts

Samantha Kelly

The work I produce is a response to my research into society and its divides pressures and defenses. The imagery I create uses optical illusions and the idea of camouflage to imply, the repression I feel, exists in Western society.  I intend to bring attention to the deceptions we face, and the illusions we create to conceal ourselves in order to alter the perceptions others have of us.  The fundamental issue I wish to question is the illusion of money and the quick fixes that material worth brings.

The statements I am making are in response to my experience of growing up in the working class community of the North East.  My perspective of money is that it is merely an illusion, an unrealistic concept that can be used to manipulate power over others.  My intentions are to underline the opinions I have of the fabricated influence that material products have, and our attachments to them.
