Statement:  

The modern fragmented individual is made more so through the internet, as a construct and projection of self and others, respectively. Online personas - as mediated by Facebook, blogs, and YouTube - point to both an impulsive unconscious truth, and the superficially edited layers which obscure it. As both indictment and concession, I use provocative images of myself collaged onto grand sceneries, sometimes in conjunction with fictitious companions, to elicit ambivalent narratives of self, sexuality, identity, and the body - all malleable entities by which we are manipulated.
