We interact with the internet differently than we do with the real world in a way that separates our online lives from off offline lives. With the internet, we can allow ourselves to enter a dream realm with technology that works as fast as our imagination. It is an opportunity to create an online mask to hide our identities, create an ideal version of ourselves, or play completely different characters. These masks we create online now have the potential to seep into reality thanks to new technology. What I have created are digitally painted masks of personas and internet personalities that can live stream onto users faces to let them experience how different one person can be in these worlds and question how genuinely we let ourselves be perceived.
