Images of Rapture
Images of Rapture explores the ecstatic in vapid: all that is ostentatious yet somehow joyful for it. The sticky sweetness of hair stuck in lip gloss. Flip through a glossy magazine, and rub the perfume ads on your wrist. The tactility, the gesture of scrolling through Instagram. Britney Spears, “my loneliness is killing me…”, your heart screaming along: me too.
You want to live fancy?
Baby believe me, it’s only a matter of time.
