For my studies at the Hogeschool voor de Kunsten Utrecht I did my first "schouw" (midterm project).
Whereas my project started from Territory I quickly shifted my subject to physical Identity & individuality and the issues concerning it.
We live in a society where the social pressure is an overwhelming constant and we are subjected to commercial views of ideals every day. It is well know that the struggle to keep up with this rushed world is one of the main causes of the increasing amount of burn-outs and depressions among teenagers and young adults. Finding yourself and staying true to ones sense of self is a challenge.
As final work, concluding my research, I've created a set of illustrations. All focussing on another aspect of my research, but not all of it. There is no universal visual concept of identity. Therefore I've used other well-known signs and symbols to communicate the message.
