The basic concept of this action is the same as the one seen in my other work, Reflections. I want to explore different visual ways to carry out this concept. With this work I wanted to delve into the idea of mixing two images: a stereotypical image of how a woman is supposed to look and the real one, the image of myself. The two faces blend and generate a new different face, as a methaphor of my idea.
The formal element I’ve based my work on is the moment in which I rip the paper. The action of tearing the poster, the images formed by broken parts of papers and also the editing of the different takes reinforce the concept too. I “break” the music overdubbing it with the sound of tearing papers and I cut the image (leaving a black screen with sound in the background).
