I am showing First Person Shooter and 1H (video & object) at BYU MOA
Mirror Mirror: Contemporary Portraits and the Fugitive Self

Brigham Young University Museum of Art:

October 23,  2009 – May 8, 2010
Opening: Thursday, October 22, 2009 from 7:00 to 9:00 pm

This exhibition explores how we shape our identities and how we seek to change perceptions of ourselves. Works by multiple local and international artists trace the influences of rituals, facades, social media, and the family from various perspectives, in examining what it means to be human beneath the veneers we accumulate in society.
