I chose to explore the assessment task thought he lens of ‘body’. In the environment in which we find ourselves at the moment I think it has become even more prevalent that, excluding face to face communication, all of our interactions occur thought he internet. Weather it be instagram, zoom or FaceTime, facebook, text message or phone call, everything we encounter primarily happens though the lens of the internet. I wanted to explore how this modern world we engage with has changed the way we interact and interpret both our own bodies and the human form in general. 
By layering textiles and creating different textures and contrasts using experimental additive and subtractive methods, I was able to communicate the complex, and sometimes toxic, environment social medium platforms present in relation to the body.  
For the presentation images I chose to style them as mock instagram posts to further exaggerate my angle of development.
