A #hashtag is a type of label or metadata tag used on social network and microblogging services which makes it easier for users to find messages with a specific theme or content. Users create and use #hashtag by placing the hash character (or number sign) #hashtag in front of a word or unspaced phrase, either in the main text of a message or at the end. Searching for that #hashtag will then present each message that has been tagged with it. Since #hashtag become to involved in ours daily life on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter, We posted ours photos with #hashtag most of every time to make statement of population of LIKE, FOLLWER and FAMOUS but we forget how beautiful of photograph. I called this project “#hashtag overused”. My works is experiment to audience with #hashtag all over photograph by typewriter to tell story as expression, moments, persons, place, felling, emotion, what is artist think and Etc. What I want to see is today, Are we really needs those #hashtag information to tell what is satisfies of wonder and doubt?
I named this project “#hashtag overused”. In this collection of work I am focusing on the manipulation of prints as my main medium, especially its effects on the social media culture. I manipulated these photograph by typing over these prints using a typewriter because I want to make texture, soft and hard in word and character and to retain a sense of permanencies - unlike computer graphics- mistakes cannot be deleted nor manipulated, thus it must be intergrated into the work. This particular statement is parallel to life's choices and experiences where edits are impossible and must be taken as is. Another technique that I used in my work is the ultilization of high gloss paper where ink cannot absorbed into the paper itself. However the imprint still remain- very much like memories and experiences where. One can try to forget but marks and wounds will remain.
My art allowed me to express myself and communicate my story with audience through my photographs and words - words which often time are mistake. I advocate that mistake are neither right or wrong- it just simply an experience or momentary decisions where one can often find beauty.
