Dr. Strange

 Dr. Strange is a black and white portrait series with colorful silk screen background layers. This tryptic depicts the dissonance between the modernized and industrial part of Central Square and its eccentric community.

The portraits overlayed with contrasting color prints portray the disconnection between the community's personal experience and the changing environment around them.

 Inherently, this will serve as a microcosm for American societal structures as so many cultural relics like Central Square are being changed by the growing future.

I took inspiration from the mediums used during the Pop Art movement. Andy Warhol's silk screening process was something I wanted to learn and experience while also stemming my project from photography. The imperfections of the process, and the visual imperfections in the print replicate the challenges of a shifting community.
