I am Shannen. An observer of the everyday with an interest in subcultures and the other. My fascination is the human being and its dedication to materialism, appearances, passions and hobbies. Characters that are often featured in my work are people in tight communities on all outskirts of society.

I call myself an online voyeur, I study the human being by the material they produce and share online. I collect this material. I research our online presence, privacy and accompanying ethics. I want to create awareness about these topics. 

I am an invisible creator, most people don't know I follow them until I can present them with a finished product. This is possible by using media where people are publicly in contact with one another. I present my work serial and research how I can filter collections of images into categories that I can put into a typology that suits my narrative.
