Familiar Strangers

A piece from memory inspired by the encounters of people I came across that day; I wanted to give the piece an almost digital, hyper-real feel as though the viewer is watching a sped-up vlog of that day. I used a range of mediums and layers of symbols and figures to create what almost appears chaotic at some points; a pace which was fed into and inspired by the endless array of images and videos we witness online merging other people's lives and encounters with one's own.
