The idea of community has dramatically changed over millennia. Some argue that social ties have weakened as communities grow larger, while others believe they are stronger than ever.
What we can’t deny, is how greatly social media and the concept of individualism have impacted our perceptions of community.
In my Totem series, I intricately combine individual figures I find on social media to create totems of strength. To remind us that true power is not found in the individual, but when individuals come together to form a community.
