This is my final piece that's on show at the end of year exhibition at Camberwell.
The work itself is made up of plaster, latex and clay model smartphones that have an NFC chip placed under the small painting that links to the relevant blog post. I've used the materials as they pick out the fine detail of smartphones, allowing me to create replica's that hold on to the detail and precision of each smartphone.
I've done this to reflect how we share and connect with each other. NFC sharing has become more common with the introduction of Android Beam, S Beam and smartphones from manufacturers like Samsung, Sony and HTC. This idea of me sharing these intimate images with the public is play on the idea that we share things much more easily and without as much care. We embrace ourselves and the images we take and share them with friends, social networks and the internet as a whole.
My work, which is based around intimacy, acts as a way for me to share with the audience a more personal insight to my work and lifestyle. The images, which are of gay men portrayed in an intimate way, represent my life and my love. I don't only reveal the images, by using NFC I link the audience to a blog post with added text. A way for me to communicate my ideas in a clear way.
