An Overlooking Translucent Figure

I recently came across these images of a sculpture by Alessandra Rossi which was installed on the coast of Bondi Beach. I love how the sculpture combines the girl’s figure with the landscape behind her creating the idea that she can blend into the background. Through the sculpture the artist has shared the message that we are losing our own identities and ourselves are beginning to blend into the background of society. Furthermore, I love how the head of the installation is transparent and it appears that the colour has been drained away. This could suggest that we are losing our own freedom of expression as we have begun to think the same as everybody else.
