CUT & PASTE is a series of collages exploring social media, the obsession with beauty, narcissism in the digital age, and my own view of myself. By cutting & pasting images of myself, I take snippets of the "ideal" me and turn myself into something absurd and sometimes grotesque. I'm exploring not only our own instinct to photoshop even the most basic instagram selfie, but the culture we have subsequently created & support where people can shop for a new plastic surgeon & self with a few clicks and likes. We can cut & paste ourselves, pinch & blur as much as we like but which version of ourselves is real? What we see in the mirror, or the version that ends up online?
