For todays project i thought i’d look at the idea of of ‘privacy’; something we all value in out our lives but not something we all have the benefit of having. In this case the idea of ‘celebrity’ is brought into question. These people are constantly hounded by the media and the public eye, little is left unturned. But what is too much? Yes these celebs have allowed us a glimpse into there lavish lives but surely even they have the right to a few little secrets. This is something i’m going to touch on amongst other aspects of privacy and see where my development takes me today.
