Risk Culture

Frank Lepkowski's avatar Frank Lepkowski Vote Code: 66371

I will be showing a series of digital paintings centered around escapism and identity creation on social media. “Risk Culture,” borrowed from the business world, describes "the beliefs, knowledge and attitudes about risk shared by a group of people." Here, it is applied to the idea of adolescents growing up online where knowledge and influence spread faster than ever before. I’m interested in how we create an image of ourselves online, particularly how social media can provide a place for young people to create alternate identities.
