The 20 Friends I wish i had

Would you like to be someone else for a month?

Who do you wish you could know? Who would it be? Would they be activists, artists, politicians, comedians? For this Project the 20 friends have constructed the online identites of the20 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 http://www.belindahaikes.com/Art/20Friends/20Friends.html and at http://www.facebook.com/home.php?#!/pages/The-20-Friends-I-wish-I-had/249440081752?ref=ts
