"The witnesses" are a 9 piece intaglio print composition printed in 3 proofs.
This work deals with the symptoms of modern society. It shows human beings as empty shells driven to apathy. The nine figures represent the absence of humanity in the time of mass media and globalization, a reminder of a state we are all endangered to experience.
The idea for this work stuck with me since the mass anxiety generated globally in 2017. It seemed that in order to live a normal life we had to shift to less sensible versions of our selves. This evident loss of empathy seems like a serious threat of the modern world. "The witnesses" are mare depictions of what we all can become.
The prints were limited due to complex printing methods involving intaglio and relief print and multiple plates per sheet.
