The Real Me


For my video selfie, I chose to record my self taking off my “disguise” and showing my real self. This is because when I was asked to make a video that would capture my “artistic alter-ego”, I thought what kind of artist do I want to be. The answer was simple, an artist who was confident, brave, and strong. But I realized that I can never that kind of artist if I am not willing to be myself first. I always believed that I had to art the way people wanted me to do it, little did I know that I could also do art the way I wanted to. I chose to use the mirror effect on photobooth because it distorted the view of my face as I was stripping myself of my disguise. This represents how I am not recognizable in my disguise but recognizable when I am my true self.
