||A room with a view
This work intends to explore the idea of "Media" and
its influence on our lives and society, especially in relation to consumerism. "Media
defines the whole person" (Jenkins, J 82).
Television, radio, video, films, computers, newspapers, magazines, books, advertisements
and cinema all play a huge role in twenty first century society and identity. They can well
be understood as a tool for mass consumption.
Through the act of covering the furniture with recycled media i.e., newspapers, magazines,
etc., I intend to give the viewer an impression of how the media infiltrates or penetrates
We, like the paper straws that are rolled, entangled and wrapped, are enticed, captivated,
mesmerised and even delighted by the "view".
