Hear No. See No. Speak No.
The purpose of 'Hear No. See No. Speak No.' is to bring awareness to the matters of the way society practices religion, belief and spirituality. These images reflect how we instrument faith throughout our daily lives outside of belief itself – whether it’s to participate in a particular practice out of obligation of family tradition, social acceptance, or internal conflict.
Concurrently, 'Hear No. See No. Speak No.' is meant to show how this saying is acted upon in the modern day lifestyle. This project is meant to portray the interactions with all three 'evils'– yet to demonstrate how it is nearly impossible to avoid partaking in any one of them without mishap or fumble. It’s not within human nature to hear or see or speak everything perfectly. That is not how we learn - we are learning beings. These images are meant to question and bring debate to the discussion of what ‘evil’ is to some, and how it may be a daily habit or lifestyle for others.
