Recent honors graduate Daniel Savage’s talks about his series, Fluxability. which he contributed for this fortnight’s Body Politic pull out.
Fluxability aims to question the construction and categorisation of individuals based on collective and personal notions of the ‘other’ and ‘norm’.
Within the images I represent a single individual existing simultaneously as ‘disabled’, ‘abled’, and ‘superabled’.
I use this visual relationship to subvert preconceived notions of the ‘other’ and ‘norm’. The work encourages the viewer to reassess these opposing binary labels, and the individual and collective roles we all play as spectators & viewers of these images.
