This is where I will be addressing the work I make that deals with confronting a “2-dimensional” plane. This could include painting, photography, digital imaging, and any other number of media that I think fits the category.
The Emoticon series attempts to address the attempts to humanize virtual interaction via text. Emoticons have become surrogates for actual expressions and has become a creative form of personalizing communication through email and texting.
This attempt at reclaiming the human interaction is inverted and actual people are performing digital emotions. The models are performing digital recreations of human expression.
Subtly manipulated, the digital versions of people becoming digital versions blurs the boundary between human interaction, traditional portraiture, and digital visual culture.
