Current Obsession Magazine [Shoot + Interview]
Creative Direction • Production • 3D Graphics + Motion • CGI
I created a series of gritty, glossy, hybrid human/avatar paintings that capture you the audience in the act of digital trespassing and celebrate the building of ourselves through the building of our digital environments. Here I present three modes of Internet existence: the Followed, the Hacker, and the Isolated.
The Hacker, with their rendered appendages, manipulates their digital environment: the Internet is a tool, and they know how to use it! The Followed reside in a hall of funhouse mirrors: they live to be seen but lack genuine connection, only seeing reflections of themselves in all those who follow them. The Isolated stand apart in their own dark corner of the Internet: they have all the tools for connection, but their connectivity is weak, their image is pixelated, and their voice comes out as garbled echoes.
