Conrad Ennis — No Content
Posted on August 10, 2012
Conrad Ennis investigates loss of identity and objectification of people depicted in print.
NO CONTENT is a personal project — and soon to be published zine — founded on the collection, distortion, and juxtaposition of found images. An exploration of loss and identity in consumer media, NO CONTENT addresses the notion that persons depicted in print are modified objects of consumption; depersonalized expressions of abstract and often latent desires. By distorting preexisting imagery, I deemphasize the role of the person or place as it is depicted, instead creating a unique and unfamiliar interpretation of the commonplace. All images are composited and duplicated on a black and white photocopier.
