Avatar (in White)

Avatar (in White) describes a self-curated portrait - but how does one portray the narrative of identity in a 160 pixels square? The camera focuses inward just as the image projects outward. The individual relegated to two dimensions by marketers and technology, struggles to be seen in three dimensions -- to retake space and time (for better or for worse). We swap out selves, twisting in dissonance, increasingly fearful that we must forego technical society and the monster of celebrity and narcissm of social media in order to preserve our digital anonymity. Music by Devolver from the album Sky Full of Holes, transsiberriaan music co.
