The American Dream

October 2, 2008 asalazar8

The digital image that I created is supposed to represent the modern day “American Dream”. The image represents a woman who is beautified trapped in the house with a handsome rich looking man standing on top. Women are still objectified and considered material possessions through our culture and perceived as part of a “man’s world”. We can see the woman looking out, but doing nothing to break this concept. This can also be read as the woman is looking at the man, drawing attention to him, while all focus goes to the man. This can be read as the male being seen as the dominant sex, technically owning the house and every thing inside of it.
