Wallpaper

In this wallpaper installation, the decorative pattern is comprised of a collection of tiny head shots of the same person with over a thousand different hairstyles and make-up applications. Each head shot is generated using a virtual makeover software application available on Taaz.com. The process reveals both a somewhat obsessive and humorous search for the best (or worst) look amid endless possibilities but also reveals a perverse nature of digital culture, the overload of choices, mind numbing freedom to undo, and the constant systemic effort to monetize taste and choices.
