Shaked Shamir

Art is a visual way to tell a story. My stories are inspired by bits and pieces of the world I live in. I see my art as a puzzle as I constantly attach and regroup different images into one integral world. I mainly use techniques like collage, moving image and law-tech animation. The foundation of those techniques is to make impossible new connections occur visually. This allows me to create semi-realistic states, somewhere between daily situations and delusional ones. In my work I combine different sources of inspiration materials, from personal family pictures to contemporary and old-fashioned books or magazines. This creates undefined images that have no specific time or place. We all live today in a reality of over exposure to huge variety of images. I use my collage and moving images works to understand these circumstances and confront them.
