The Curating of Self (2014)

The Curating of Self’ is about examining the increasingly fractured nature of female identity. The installation is comprised of three constellations of self-images including social media avatars, a video self-portrait, and various artist portraits. I was particularly interested in the ways that women chose to adapt their identities via the selection and creation of avatars and profile pictures depending on different contexts, in a subconscious response to sociocultural expectations. With these real-world and online representations I hope to reveal a complex and often contradictory form of emerging self-portraiture.
