I believe there is a universal impact of the media throughout the world, effecting people both positively and negatively. My work reflects my reactions and perceptions to the complexities of media’s impact on society. The manner with which information is presented is so fleeting that our responses have become fleeting as well. This blur has a numbing effect on our perception.
