Seasonal Affective Disorder
Whatever the weather, artists for centuries have been inspired to make art in response to it. Art, fashion, and photography throughout history, have revolutionised the way we think about politics, environmental/social issues, culture and even art itself. In the 21st century we are bombarded, through the media, by a constant stream of news, flipping from the personal to the global in seconds. This information often presents us with serious issues surrounding the weather and environment and this is what L3 YR1 have responded to.
I have created the work to attempt to show how seasonal affective disorder can affect sufferer’s day to day lives. I am trying to communicate this through placing the subject in settings that are regular such as a bedroom or outside. Artists such as Daido Moriyama were very big influences.
