Under The Influence

by Kelly Kabialis!

My piece was entitled: “Under The Influence” which was about the disgusting effect the media can have on my generation. I took bottles and labeled them, T.V, Internet, religion, “role models”, and who could forget art. In front of the bottles I had objects representing them, a laptop, a TV, a bible, a painting and a gross celeb tabloid magazine. I took these bottles and objects and inspected them. Than slowly I would try the liquid from them. I would than have a serious reaction, I loved the taste of art, TV made me stupid, internet made me focused, the “role models” made me spit out the liquid and religion, I could not handle. So that was my individual self created piece.
