How often when a teenager does something totally awesome does it get acknowledged? Not often enough?

This is awesome.

"Prison" by Siever Karim, 2005. As part of the Image & Identity Young People’s Conference at the V&A.

Siever’s Statement:

‘My ideas were based on conformity, and the suppression of cultures and personal individuality by being a number, wearing a uniform, being trapped in the cages of the social machine. I created my own police height chart and got my classmates to stand in front of it. I also made digital barcodes to symbolise the gathering of information which can be accessed so easily today.’

Image & Identity Artwork Project, Victoria & Albert Museum, 2006
