Back in My Day is a digital collage. The prompt was to create a digital collage under the vague umbrella of history older than 50 years. Total scanned images _ > 100.
Focusing on the common turn of phrase, "Back in my day..." I tinker with crossing the line of American patriotism and its history of ignorance. Looking upon the past with rose-colored glasses leaves you wanting for more in the present.
Technological improvements and culture changes are natural symptoms of time passing. Understanding the reality, it (past&presnt) kinda sucks all the time..in different ways. This collage serves as a taste of the negative side of American history, juxtaposed by its bright advertising-inspired format.
