Featured in the 2017 Master's show at the Cambridge School of Art, this project continues my research into the selfie as a performative, conversational and autobiographical tool in the development of identity and personality. Selfies are the response of the times, through technology we are enabled to control our own image and the way we present ourselves to others. These two factors allow us to enter a complex conversation with others – a conversation with multiple strings in social media channels.‚Äč

The project explores the vacuum of solitude one might experience in a busy social media environment. Engrossed in our own appearances and in search of our identities we often remain unnoticed and the search for the “I” instead of being reflected on and reshaped according to our environment, is being pushed away out of reality, increasing the gap between our image and our identity.
