Post Industry

Post Industry, originally uploaded by crescentsi.

The photograph of Julie is layered on top of a photograph I took of the Bullring shopping Centre, Birmingham, UK. Other textures were used as well.
Hopefully, this picture evokes ideas regarding capitalism, the "shrine" of the market place (agora), the changing face of the workplace and the potency of advertising. To me, contemporary advertising expresses a repressed need to invent gods and goddesses and to worship "quasi-deities" in a materialistic and capitalist landscape.

Thank you to XstockX (Julie) for alowing me to use her excellent photo in this picture.
