Inspired by online sharing forums, vintage pornography and the luxuriously overt formalities of the rococo era, Laid in Heaven deciphers elements of kitsch from our digital everyday.

Over-saturated in low-fi and recursive digital imagery, this work attempts to articulate society’s pull to online perverseness, eroticism and its abundance of tacky trends through six key elements: body, desire, fantasy and belief, nature, texture and time.
The three combined video sequences sync through a heightened and glorified sense of 21st century kitsch – mirroring an excellent taste in bad taste.
