With the lack of self-standpoint and the care given to what other people might think, one’s identity is created with other people’s opinions. What is believed to be good in other people’s eyes, the estimation of their expectations, and their influences, are grabbed to form the representation of the selves we want to project to the outsiders. Our own portrait is mere of others.
Using portrait photographs of different people layered together in a computer program to create a face of a non-existed person, this project is a reflection of the artist’s self-doubt and the question of how one’s identity is formed by the influence of people they encounter. If we are full of many other figures, then who exactly are the true us?
