artist: Hatti Rex (anonymity)

Who's anonymouses??????????????????????
Hatti Rex has pasted some anonymous internet comments onto old photographs. It is quite fun to imagine a lot of people from 1942 slagging each other off on the internet, giggling mischievously to themselves whilst listening to The Andrews Sisters and wearing clothes in the style of 1942.
Looking at these pictures with the captions added makes me wonder if these people were actually very rude. It's hard to tell by looking at someone but I bet they all were really nasty and made rude jokes about people's cooking when they had tried very hard and it was actually okay cooking anyway, not like on Come Dine With Me.
I think it's quite good to combine old and new things like this because it's easy to forget that people in the past were just like us except without the music of Usher and jumpers with Bart Simpson on them.
