Sally Waterman

Knowing that I want to use juxtaposition and layering within my work, I was curious to see how other artists have incorporated these two techniques (eg Chila Burman). Waterman’s series ‘Keep Smiling’ (2015) addresses the generational differences in communication and recording of informtion; analogue versus digital. Seeing the slideshow made me think of how Effie commented on the fact that me interviewing my family members is one of the oldest forms of communication; verbally passing on stories, advice and real life experience. However by recording the audio and filming the process, I have transitioned into digital communication. I think incorporating analogue material – whether it is hand-written text, hand-painted imagery or the unedited audio of the interview – is important in order to convey the personal, intimate experience of addressing one’s own cultural identity.
