facetime

The selfie has been a theme in the development of my work focusing on identity.

I was looking at the September 2018 when I saw the tittle “Face Time”. It seem like something that would be an avenue for commercial development with my photographic and design skills.

It is also an inspiration for my “Iamnotaprototype” T. Shirt development were I use my image to express myself. I want to improve my photography processing skills and make my work more unique and desirable as a commercial product. But I am jumping ahead of my self. I am a victim of a crime that needs to be exposed and people need to be aware of the US Military abuse, heinous and evil crime with HAARP IONIZING Electromagnetic Frequencies.

Identity theft is when someone steals your personal information or possessions so they can use your identity.
Identity fraud is when they use your identity for their own financial gain – usually at a great cost to you.

US Military are abusing me with HAARP Electromagnetic Frequencies trying to exploit my identity for their benefit. I was groomed in Terrorism by US Military who wanted me in Zimbabwe passing weapons to militia to overthrow Zimbabwe government and cause civil unrest because US wanted to invade Zimbabwe for Strategic Minerals for their own commercial and military benefit. I exposed this crime in 2015 to the Zimbabwe government as I was being forced to do an act of Treason against my government & country against my will.  US Military were forcing me to have a child with a Muslim man so they could frame me for links to Islamic Terrorism and discard me when they had succeeded  their invasion and looting of Zimbabwe Strategic Minerals using engineered terrorism to justify war on terror invasion of Zimbabwe.

US Military are trying to keep this technology secret so they can do similar crimes that involve using foreigners for espionage and treason

Identity

My MA in Photography I started looking at how identity is perceived both by the individual and people around them. With the shift in technology, as people were going online, peoples identities were no longer static but were very varied and insightful.

I did work on my identity and produce various identities under various settings and relative to the relationship these identities were relating towp-1515374305082137000812.jpg

Wearable Protest: Fashion’s Role in Activism Design Museum Monday, 20th Nov 2017

Maybe so but will never truly know, because Digital media has its own way of magnifying things. you might think you have access to the world but in reality we all live in our own bubbles defined by our backgrounds, experiences and interest

I  decided I wanted to create a T.shirt as a form of protest for US Military abusing me with HAARP Electromagnetic Frequencies. The reason the project has not developed has been due to US Military continuous attempts to divert me from exposing the crime that was perpetrated against me.

Peaceful protest becomes futile when any attempts to embark on  it is interfered with. I am not a gatekeeper. I actually do not condone or judge anyone on their actions where this crime is involved. I do not even make excuses for US Military because they is none. My goal is to get justice for the crime that was perpetrated against me. I am going to give a go at peace protest involving protest wear.

It began with an idea to develop a t shirt. The process could be a therapeutic way of me dealing with trauma.
