Nice Man

14 x 18cm, full colour digital hologram with Photoshop background image, text and video chroma key effects. Final hologram produced at Geola Digital, Lithuania, May, 2009

This hologram continues my theme of contemporary communication. It explores the use of Internet chat rooms by predators. The face has no eyes or head and takes on the appearance of a mask as many predators use a false image with their online username. The language used appeals to the vulnerability of teenagers who want desperately to be recognised as young adults. As such, the language is also a mask hiding the real intentions as indicated in the spelling of the final word.
