Betwixt and Between, Momentarily Masquerade #6
Visual aspects on youth culture has advanced by commodification agent called mass media and advertising. Thus affects youth generation nowadays towards visual language that spread all over variety of mass media, whether it’s printed or digital.

Besides, contemplating this movement will make another benefit to youth culture itself, as they behavior today leads into such consumptive behavior, and not seeing this as a cultural movement that quintessence a great advancement of visual language. By any means necessary, “Betwixt and Between, Momentarily Masquerade” series is a collective manifestation of a collective idioms that became part of visual culture itself. I believe, that the usage of montage techniques I use supposedly could deliver my judgement and observation towards this ‘cultural’ issue.
