Media Mayhem

Maxxi Minaxi May
Maxxi Minaxi May’s Media Mayhem represents the impact language and often its misuse can have on constructions of identity, orientated around race. Using different coloured skins from local Australians, words are digitally “tattooed” to incorporate collected race-related statements from the Internet. These words, taken from personalities in the public-eye, broadcast news and product packaging reflect the complexities of how we are talked to and how we talk about similarity and difference. Ultimately, language is confusing and contributes to representation which is not always congruent with self-identity. Contributors: Adriana; Angela; Bodhi; Brian; Cass; Dave; Dee; Devi; Eva; Geeta; Indigo; Jacqueline; Jan; Joe; Josh; Julianna; Levi; Loretta; Mallika; Manuel; Marion; Massimo; Maxxi; Mel; Olga; Oscar; Parvati; Paul; Rebecca: Roeli; Russ; Shane; Shatish; Silvia; Steve; Tara; Tracy; Trish. Ancestral Backgrounds: Aboriginal; African; Chinese; Croatian; Czech; Dutch; English; Finnish; French; Greek; Hungarian; Indian; Indonesian; Irish; Italian; Mauri; Portuguese; Scottish; Spanish; Sri Lankan; Swiss.
