Micro-Project #9 – Video Selfie

This video shows the process of me writing all sorts of qualities I wish I possess in the eyes of others on a mask, to eventually wearing the mask and framing the camera at an angle as if taking a selfie. The action of wearing the mask shows how my alter ego may not be completely representational of who I am as a person, or even completely different because it hides my whole true identity since my whole face is covered. In different situations, the alter ego I possess may be different and I wanted to show how open the choices are when this identity we show is virtual. We can choose to be any kind of person we want to over the net, we can claim certain facts as we deem fit and it might just evolve into an assumed truth despite the fact that it is probably not.
