A Community of Chaos and Consumption

The photographs in this series are a collection of “vernacular” party pictures referencing the casual and familiar nature of some of the scenes. My images play on the “attractiveness” of alcohol utilizing broken bottle shards arranged on the photographs. From a distance the broken glass appears to be a glittering valuable, however upon closer inspection the sharp and dangerous reality is revealed. A secondary function of the glass is allowing anonymity to the subjects in the photographs. Students attend university to learn, evolve, and create new bonds. What habits will be impossible to shake and how will we find our place in relationships?
