mixed found media / digital collage

*online now* is a self portrait series of images of varying dimensions, integrating photography with text, 3D renders, and found objects from the internet. This series focuses on the relationship between technology and performativity, our ‘internet persona’ and our ‘authentic’ self; in this series I examine the way I interact with the camera lens as it intersects with my identity as a queer nonbinary Chinese-American person, and the way that others’ perception of myself affects my perception of myself. It explores the relationship between my body and my self as seen through a racialized, fetishized lens.
