The 20 Friends I wish i had


Who do you wish you could know? Who would it be? Would they be activists, artists, politicians, comedians? For this Project I have constructed the online identites of the
20 Friends I wish I had. Employing the iconic aesthetic of facebook with the nostalgia of Victorian Silhouettes, this work uses physical paintings, in tandem with an online identity that is being run each month by a new svengali.

Would you like to be someone else for a month? Become the person you always wanted to be. John, Wayne, The Queen and more. If you are interested in participating contact belinda haikes at belhaikes {at} yahoo {dot} come. You can find the 20 friends on their facebook page and be their friend too. You can also see them all at
