Artist Statement

Navigating my way through the line of stalker and investigator, fiction and reality, performance and the everyday. My work looks at multidisciplinary sources and the influence this has on the development and identity of the self. Facebook, instagram, snapchat, internet culture, memes and family photos all encroach on the way others perceive us. 

The internet is the perfect entry point into the life of Georgia Periam as multiple people are merged into one, unconsciously creating a combined Georgia Periam. An uneasy feeling and voyeuristic tendencies are present, is it me you are looking at or another person all together, are these images ones I want to be seen or the discarded photos that didn't make it to an online realm.
