I thought the world was innocent
What identifies childhood innocence? For me this is a teddybear. This is one representation of childhood memories. The outline is used to evoke this memory. I did this as I want to carry on with the theme of childhood innocence and contrast this with barcodes. Barcodes for me can appear to be useful but in some ways can take on a sinister meaning depending how you look at it. It can represent our current society, commerce, storage of digital information such as products, services even people. Out of this combined imagery I wanted to express almost some kind of religious or spiritual experience.
