Project title: Preconceptions

Concept Summary:

This project will explore the assumptions that come out of people’s preconceptions, including stereotyping. The project will include models shirtless, with writing on their bodies.

Project Overview:

Everyday people look at us and make assumptions about who we are, the choices we make, how we would relate to them. Often, these assumptions are either wrong or simply hateful and can often be disproven if the person making the assumption took 5 minutes to talk to the person they are making all the assumptions about.

I am making a series of pictures showing models coming and going. On the front of them will be written a number of correct and incorrect assumptions and on the back will be the revealed truth. The concept I am trying to convey is a person can only really know another person by getting to know him or her, and not by simply assuming they know who someone is by how they perceive their appearance.

I am very interested in getting input from the models about what kind of preconceptions they have faced in their lives and incorporating their life experienced into the artwork.
