Kate Alterio - One of these things is not like the others (2006)

With this body of work I have used a Sesame Street game to rekindle the innocence of childhood and provoke thought about self identity and societal perceptions of those who stand apart from the norm.

The square peg in a round hole is restricted of freedom; all that glitters is not gold warns that it pays to look closely before making assumptions; to be hanging on by a limb is to be outcast from safe surroundings of similarity, but it also provides the opportunity to shine; likewise, those who stand out in a crowd can often be the brightest or most golden.

Whatever the context, we are captured by the one who is not like the others.

One of these things is not
like the others

One of these things just
doesn't belong

Diamond in the rough

Not all that glitters is gold

One of a kind

One of a kind

Crossing over

Shine like a star

Square peg in a round hole

Standing out in a crowd

One of these things is not
like the others

One of these things just
doesn't belong

The odd one out

Hanging on by a limb

Diamond in the rough

Square peg in a round hole

Standing out in a crowd

Standing out in a crowd

Shinning Together

Standing out in a Crowd

Standing out in a Crowd

Diamond in the rough

Diamond in the rough

Diamond in the rough

Shining Together
