Looking at traditional male gender roles I have created a series of short videos which depict the modern day male as just a male. Just as a TV is just a TV. No matter the brand or the colour, the ethnicity or the sexual orientation, a man is a man like a TV is a TV. The evocative nature of the work is to express my intent of questioning the masculine identity in contemporary society. By recreating domestic events which the viewer experiences through a series of TV screens I am prompting individual reactions to the work, some which may be based on social expectation and others which may be more confronting. By covering the individual identity in an abstracted layer of cloth, the work holds its minimalistic nature so as to avoid the stereotypical judgment of the male within each role that he is depicting.
