Identity Crisis

Day to day, our relationships with technology and social media question the superficial divide between reality and virtuality. We've become addicted to maintaining our digital status and grooming an idealized memory of our lives. This piece explores the resulting effects on our subconscious fears, curation of digital identities, and how social media operates as a prosthetic for our autobiographical memories.

In exhibition, three screens are presented directly in front and side of the viewer, filling their peripheral vision. The duration of each video is 6 minutes, intended to play on an infinite loop.

This project was made in 2014 as part of my senior thesis at Pratt Institute. Professor: Ely Kim
