Celebrity Worship Trilogy explores the evolution of our collective unconscious in a day where the celebrity is put on a pedestal through the use of easy- access technology that distances us from ourselves. Blurring the lines between rebellion and embracement, Celebrity Worship utilizes moments of personal struggle to create an identity in a world of new digital realms by placing celebrities as mirrors to our own dream selves. The first episode portrays the artist as an embodiment of Paris Hilton (on the left) and Kim K (On the right). With the use of After Effects, Photoshop, facial prosthetics and face swap technology, the artist embodies the modern dream that such two celebrities represent- to be famous for being famous. The second and third video of the trilogy recreate tabloid covers, depicting the private relationships of Hollywood stars. Playing several characters on the cover, Ant mocks curated Hollywood relationships that influence the way the consumer curates their public life online.
