Wovoka is a prime example of where my artwork is heading. Living in an automated world is a fact that is impossible to ignore today. I want my artwork to speak of Native culture and its struggles to adapt to more contemporary times. I incorporated a switch board pattern on the background of Wovoka because what better to speak of current times than the computer. The four women sitting on the wall in the right corner are dressed in traditional clothing. Their hair is in traditional standard, which is in a bun on each side of the head. This hair style is very common in Pueblo Indian Heritage. By putting such linear images like the switch board and those images being offset by more organic figures like four women helps me convey a story of the Native American trying to conform to society without selling his or her soul.
