S U S P I C I O N
A collaboration with classmates who are researching different systems: social media, government, language and accent, everyday perception, tarot cards, parsons school life, and – my topic – animal cruelty (in clothing).
For our group project, we noticed that the theme of suspicion is present in all our systems and decided to make 4×4″ digital collages, one per person. To unite our collages, we agreed to include the color red (the color that reminded us of suspicion) and to mount it on black illustration board.

My System: Animal Cruelty in Fashion
My collage plays on the idea of skin – the fashion industry kills animals for their skin in order to cover human skin. In this collage, my intention is to suggest that I would rather go naked and be comfortable in my own skin rather than wear the skin of an animal who has the same eyes as me. I used a picture of a nude model with a suspicious look to contribute to the group theme, red fur to suggest bloodshed, and a fox to emphasize where fur comes from.
