“Biography of a Portrait” is the story we tell ourselves about who we are and where we belong, not necessarily based in reality. This project combines online and desktop signifiers to navigate a conceptual triptych—“Today”, “Tomorrow”, and “Yesterday”—ideally viewed on a mobile device. The website is an introspective experiment I made in quarantine where I considered forms of representation, segments of time, and processes of loss. The intention for these works was to create an aesthetic experience accessible online in response to the current circumstances. For me, 2020 carries an important message—change is present, possible, and necessary.
Note: No personal information is collected during this experience, all decisions are purely aesthetic.
