Danielle Conrad Statement:
What is a molecule that carries the genetic instructions used in the growth, development, functioning and reproduction of all known living organisms? What are the qualities, beliefs, personality, looks and/or expressions that make a person or group? What is the process can be creative or destructive. an object normally worn on the face, typically for protection, disguise, performance, or entertainment? These statements are the basis of my thesis. The title of this project is Danielle (ego). Presented as a photobook and large framed prints hung on the wall. The project is an exploration of abstracted self. The intent of this project is to explore the correlation between mind, personality, and body language. Using language, textures, colors, masking, and forms this project presents the connection between physical and mental identity. By abstracting the body forms, I attempt to explain my thought on the body and emotions created through myself. This abstracting is visually appealing and will hook the audience in visually and then mentally when they look harder into what is actually means. For what it means, that is for the audience to create and make their own opinion on it. Everyone has different views and opinions on everything, that is the beauty of art. I am making this thesis to explain me as an artist and person and for others to learn and figure out what they think I am trying to say or what they see.
