Art 451: Assignments

Identity Remix
The web is an arena in which people’s identities can be presented as altered, exaggerated or completely falsified. This makes it an interesting place for artists, and others, to explore issues of identity. In this assignment you will create a website that functions to either slightly skew, or entirely remake, your identity. You may chose how closely the new identity fits with your current sense of self. Consider using artwork, images, etc from your existing identity which could believably be “remixed” into a new identity by adding text that you would not use to describe yourself. Or the reverse: Your own actual biography presented in a highly unusual way (see Rent-a-Negro art project). Please be aware of copyrights issues, see the copyright issues links on the class links page.
