The Gallery Gaze
GRAPHIC DESIGN- GSA ‘18
The Gallery Gaze re-contextualises the sheer quantity of selfies within gallery spaces as artworks within themselves. A hardback bound book, it comes in an array of colours and a dust jacket. The dust jacket is a debossed blank gallery wall which comes with a selection of images as stickers. When placed, the cover can begin to look like a gallery setting to have the same physicality as the contents.
The concept came from Tasmin’s observation of many gallery-goers who are too intent on getting a photograph of the artwork rather than experiencing it: they upload the photo, looking candid and curious, but block what they're supposed to be showing.
“It was an outcome that was developed following a year long query of where social media fits into the art world, if anywhere”.
