Reidâ€™s observed â€˜lifeâ€™ lived through the lens cumulates as a sublime private/public collapse, a nervous breakdown of mixed messaging, unattainable ideals, transparent clichÃ©s and hypocrisies. Picturing a photo of Pete from Big Brother taken from a gossip magazine, Reid uses his celebrity persona as a departure point into making. Pete, who has become the countryâ€™s most famous face of Touretteâ€™s Syndrome, is well known for his clowny behaviour which intentionally exaggerates the perception of his condition, turning his â€˜freakishnessâ€™ into a charismatic attribute. The stripes drawn on top of the photo roughly approximate the TV flickering of skewed transmission. Made with marker pen and a ruler, the ink bled under the rulerâ€™s surface creating aberrant smudges from what might have been a perfectly straight line, they suggest a sense of violence and beauty in their degraded communication.
