How do others interpret what makes an individual unique?

Ashlynn Wardle


Personality serves as the foundation for an individual’s behaviour and interactions with their surrounding environment. Theorist such as Eysneck, Cattell, Myers, and Briggs have developed traits used to categorise and improve understanding of personality. Interested in underpinnings of personality, my work examines how the traits perceived to make individuals unique are shared with so many others. Through collage and the printmaking process, portraits were created showing the overlap of these unique yet communal qualities. The audience’s interaction with the artwork highlights the limited and varying insight an outsider experiences when assessing someone’s personality.
