In my digital collages I have used Photoshop® to create a new world. Humour and irony are applied through the appropriation of popular images and captions. I chose the imagery of space and the contrasting but complementary, pastel atmosphere of 1950s cartoon-esque images to create a new, surreal world that is familiar but also thought provoking. This is a world that viewers can interpret themselves. The combination of past and future images engages the imagination and subverts traditional expectations of what art is and means in a satirical and light-hearted manner.
