Bio

Today's youth are the first to experience the practice of virtual self-representation through social media as an aspect of their social development. Their creation and maintenance of an online identity is a lifelong project. This multimedia workshop investigates the perameters that social media sets on self-representation by taking this daily practice out of the virtual realm. Participants create multimedia installations that share their evolving self-narratives in real space and time.
