What I really like about this piece of work is the artist’s ability to combine picture and text effectively. I think that the color scheme causes the words to jump out at the viewer, as the red background greatly enhances the white colored text. I like how the artist used something so normal-a name tag saying “My name is”- and completely changed its meaning-by adding “whatserface” below it. I think the choice of the word, “whatserface,” creates the feeling of detachment, isolation and seclusion in the viewer.
I also liked how the artist put pictures in the background of a face. However, maybe the artist could try making another piece without the faces in the background to see if the picture would be less chaotic, so the viewer could focus solely on the words and the meaning that that is trying to convey.
