It is a series of digital collages containing random pictures with anonymous people sourced from the internet. The found images are reprocessed with digital manipulations to the amount that the features become unrecognizable. This series can be perceived a form of digital recycling as well as a satirical act on how our perception of aesthetics has been greatly influenced by the digitally altered images. HAVE A NICE DAY has been featured in various magazines and websites such as Computer Arts Collection, Glamcult magazine, PAGE magazine, GOOD Magazine, Thisispaper, Today and Tomorrow, Nylon magazine blog, Trendland, Lancia TrendVisions, Crap = good, TOURIST magazine, FILE magazine, etc.
