Photographic Artwork – Hurly Burly
This composite photographic artwork consists, partly of an image taken of Angus Taylor’s sculpture, Holderstebolder, at the Norval Foundation. The idea behind the digital art piece pertains to the arbitrary and self-perpetuating social conventions that stifle individual expression. There is a time and a place for decorum, but when it disregards independence of thought and expression, it becomes a violation of the individual moral conscience. Fear of rejection is sometimes the motivating factor to shy away from taking a stand because everyone wants to fit in, to belong somewhere but the danger is that in the process we stand to lose our identity. Your physical welfare and mental health depend depends on your freedom to choose what is best for you.
I chose to name this art piece ‘Hurly-Burly’ because society tends to dismiss play for adults. Play is perceived as unproductive, petty, or even a guilty pleasure. The notion is that once we reach adulthood, it’s time to get serious. On the contrary, play brings joy and is vital to problem-solving, creativity, and relationships.
