What should I be?. Ryoji Morimoto Malamegi Lab
Fabric, paper clay, driftwood, thread, wire and acrylic paint, stitching
This work is inspired by the contrasting of purity and uniqueness that are valued in society. In the modern age people face to conform to both of these ideals, to simultaneously fit in and stand out. Everyone is born pure; as they grow they develop their own beliefs and characteristics. However, people begin to feel that the persona they develop needs to be unique and original for them to be successful in society. But they are unsure of how they should be unique or different so just adopt characteristics at random to please others. Whilst maintaining this facade they are also expected to be obedient and flexible in order to integrate into society.
