IDENTITY AS IMAGE.
We affirm ourselves through the imposition of our image. This defines its identity. Who sees me, sees me as I am? Does the gaze define the image? Image change according to who looks at it? Is our identity unique or does it have the ability to change? If the identity is not unique then can it be compared to the image? Does the image have an identity? Does identity have a value?
“Betrayed by helicopters and drones on the city, cctv cameras and modern apps, we managed to meet in an undiscovered location to reflect on the concept of identity. We worked both to modify our personal identity and the materials we were producing by doing so. The images of our new characters went through a series of unrelated devices, the action of each triggers the initiation of the next, as a “Rube Goldberg Machine” of the images. Mixing analog, digital applications, print techniques, but also common accessories from the Dark web as realistic latex masks”
