It’s just a taste is a poetic response to the increasing sense of isolation, biophilia and digital surveillance since COVID-19 lockdown.

| PERSONA | – “Derives from Latin, where it originally referred to a theatrical mask. Can refer to either the public image of one’s personality, or the social role that one adopts, or a fictional character”. In this artwork, the visual artist Miguel Martim (he/she/they) is intrigued about normativity, patriarchy, prejudice, life in different contexts… The impact on our whole perception ofeverything. Even the self-perception… Are we just an amalgamation of what others want? Can we really deconstruct ourselves to see a “clearer picture”?
I use colour and geometric figures to explore different spatial and chromatic relationships, the analysis of colour data and the exploration of mathematical science. This helps to express emotions and reveal the relationship between colour and space. The mutual composition and influence between planes and solids, creates connections between each geometric element that extends out from the image plane, to create a three-dimensional spatial effect.
This work is about a man looking for his own kind in a totalitarian society. I liken what I can’t say or post in public to a kind of code that reminds me of passing notes in class when I was a kid. If the student is caught talking in class, he will be punished. Although corporal punishment is almost extinct in China today, it was still common when I was a child, and society was ignorant and numb to it. It’s a state of acquiescence.
