“The computer is a new mirror, the first psychological machine”
(Sherry Turkle, Second Self, 1984)
Computers have become a mirror and vehicle to our fantasies, where multiple identities and realities exist via text, email, IM and social media. Second Self, features six artists from across the globe, whose work is inspired by the many ways in which we traverse identity online. Artists Mathieu Grac, Erin M. Riley, Brendan George Ko, Brendan Donnelly, Tamsen Wojtanowski and Michael Zachary explore the dualism created between our physical selves and its internet representation, creating post-modern portraits within parallel worlds that emerge as a simulated, enhanced, fragmented and hybrid versions of oneself.
