Ultimate Fantasy

The Ultimate Fantasy was made using bits of vintage magazines found in the Internet Archive’s Magazine Rack. I think the digitizing of old magazines and the rediscovery of them speaks to how memories are increasingly stored digitally and how revisiting something sensory that is a part of a memory evokes a sensation of nostalgia. Each piece of this collage gave me that sense of nostalgia in one way or another and as I was making this piece I also took inspiration from the song "Players Ball" by Outkast.
