Didartic Collages 2004
The struggle for meaning, reflection, and self-understanding is an important process of human development. Throughout human history didactic art – art wherein the central purpose is to instruct the viewer – has been developed to aid this human function. Focusing primarily on the didactic art of fairytales, however, one can see that the dominant role of reflection and self-understanding is lost in contemporary translation.
The role of the viewer/reader of the fairytale, contemporarily, has been switched from one of inner reflection to that of passive absorption. These works argue that reflection and self-understanding (on the part of the viewer) can be restored to the fairytale.
