I am Me : You are You (2009)

Are you male? Female? Gay? Straight? Black? White? Democrat? Republican? What makes you, you? Are you defined by your faith? Political affiliation? Family? Actions? How are you an individual?

As humans, we begin to define ourselves not by what we are, but what we are not. It is through this deductive process that we first develop a sense of self.

Through this project I hope to create an experience in which all the viewers develop their own self portrait by walking through an artificial crowd of people.

The site up is currently used to collect audio files for the final project. All audio files will be used in an installation based in Baltimore on a later date.
