For some reason I don't feel like uploading new work to my blog anymore, maybe it's because I'm waiting until I have a proper website to show my new stuff. Anyway, here is one new thing I've finished. I have 2 others from the summer done but I'm really waiting to finish the third so I can upload like a 3 pack. You wont be seeing a whole lot of concept work for a while (maybe a good thing?) so here is the first of my thesis pieces. It's about the concept of someones digital identity replacing their physical. Internet based identities have always perplexed me. It's easy to assume it's more detrimental, that people are uploading a fraudulent identity and masking themselves from the real world. But the opposite is equally true, where it's also much easier to show who you truly are online than it is in the real world. So this is what I wanted to explore with the piece, how the line is blurred. I hope it reads decently, I could go on about every nuance and metaphor in the narrative but I already paid you 50$ to look at my blog and your probably not reading this.
