Over the past few years much of my research has been centered on ideas of the avatar
Arm Wrestle My Ego is an exploration of the mediated self within a digital/physical matrix. It utilizes a video/code structure that ties together digital and physical processes to examine the ways in which identity is performed in online activity. Here, identity is tied to processor speed as well as to physical prowess; viewers become coequal performers within the piece, propelling the development of potential narrative lines through their interactions with my avatar.
