The work that I created was primarily in response to Evan's tactic to sample types of visual languages from things like advertising, subcultures, and specific trends. In his Assorted Cosmetics, Evan samples advertising language of something like the absolut vodka ads with the effect of light in the image. In my own practice, I am interested in the language of the conspiracy or the occult, and the dark subculture which feeds it on a particularly internet based platform. Photos depicting things like this often contain heavy pixelation, little clarity, and shoddy editing tactics to prompt the viewers attention in some way. In this piece I attempted to pull out some of these tactics and strip them further down to the language of the media itself.
