July 7th 2005

This work uses specific colours to define aspects of nationhood, religion and culture.  I have coupled this with the concept of identity of the individual (in this case specific individuals) by using a pixel taken from an electronic digital image of each persons eye, these being the London bombers of July 7th 2005.  By using the elements of colour and shape I am questioning the relationship between the individual and the State as well as individual to individual.
