Mixed Media (Digital, Video/Audio, Sculptural & Printed Elements)
“CNostalgia” is a mixed media piece with the intent to bring the feelings of nostalgia to a more physical form, such as video, audio, illustration and sculptural. It is meant to present the motto “#adultswatchcartoons”, promoting positivity in watching cartoons even as an adult and being against the idea of cartoons only being for kids. The digital parts of this piece use an archive made up of audio and video content of cartoons shown on “Cartoon Network” from the late 1990s to the early 2000s. Audio and video remixed are paired with half-realistic half-illustrated scenes of nostalgia on newhive.com. The sculptural parts of this piece consist of significant nostalgic items from the artist’s own childhood collection put together into a “time capsule” corresponding with the time these cartoons were most significant. In this time capsule, audiences are meant to look through this “time capsule”, being able to take a piece of it in the form of bookmarks, illustrated with said cartoons and quotes of how significant cartoons are to those who grew up in this time.
