Fugazzi

The underlining theme of  this series of illustrative works is the omnipresence and speed of the mass media in the 21st century. Straight, mostly black lines dominate the illustrations – hinting at wireframe aesthetics of computer-aided designs. The colour red, the only colour used next to black and white, symbolizes the emotionality of the human spirit. Humans are drawn to resemble robots – machines that follow instructions without consent – but surrounded and driven by emotions and cultural beliefs.

In the particular context of Fugazzi – meaning fake or superficial – the short lifespan of today’s media imagery is emphasized. Through extracting the essence of newspaper photographs a different social and aesthetical context is created, which enables them to live a longer life and become icons of the fading headlines they represent.
