WITH AND WITHOUT CONSENT
CONVENT STUDIO ARTIST PROGRAM
This body of work was both inspired by and closely connected to surveillance in society. In a culture of spectatorship, reality TV and constant surveillance, where do we draw the line? Marita captures random scenes in public places in Australia and abroad using photography and video, and then reinterprets the narrative by isolating the subject or eliminating their surroundings. By manipulating the images, she has the control.
