Playing Dead

Shannon Petrello


Playing Dead is a series of digital collages made up entirely of iconic images of gender that were appropriated from popular, commercial culture as well as high art and photo history. This series originally began as two separate projects: one which explored consumer culture images of women in which their victimization or death was implied, and one which explored the transformation of war into a game as it is marketed to men. Slowly, these projects began to merge, and it was startling to see how easily the two sets of images meshed together, despite their distances in time and space.
