Weekend Objective - Hollywood Projection

As Americans have "invaded" Ireland with McDonalds, I do believe they left a mark in Irish society. Noticeably Hollywood look have increased.

In streets: girls wearing short skirts, fake tan and high heals.
These images were shot on 15.09.2009
Underage disco took place in one of the Cork City Clubs. So I took my camera and went to the streets.


Blond, tanned, large breasts.



A lot of irish teenagers go for Hollywood-type image. The one problem is.. irish are quite pale and tan looks really orange. In my opinion,a lighter make-up should be chosen.

Because most of the times it just looks like this...

In research for Irish stereotype, I asked my friend to take part.
Jane is from Kilkenny, she has dark hair and pale skin.

I used projector to display Hollywood stereotype on her face-body.
... we pretend to be someone else instead of true self ...

Images bellow show juxtaposing two individuals, the pure and Hollywood-type irish.

Exploring surface: COTTON

Exploring surface: COTTON - soft box.

I projected twitter generated messages on the softbox. I found it interesting the way letters would strech. I looked at different angles, shapes, overley of material.
