Conspicuous Camouflage

Artists show that blending in can mean standing out

Implications - Artists are using camouflage to depict subjects that are supposed to blend in but in actuality jump off their canvases. The images allude to a continuous, internal human conflict: to blend in or stand out? They highlight the consumer desire to “fit in” with the rest of society, yet also set himself apart as an individual. Such a concept can be translated to mass-produced goods that also offer customization options or individual attention-grabbing accents—these let the consumer blend in with her peers but express herself at the same time.
