Today we partially live on the screen, in 2-dimensional digital worlds. Much like shadows of our full physical selves, social media reflects a projected persona and formulates a digital identity. My point of view and expression directly correlate to my identity. As I mature, I find more meaning living in the moment. Each piece in this series relates to a person, and that person is also the intended wearer. By wearing your silhouette, Cameo Appearance extends into the metaphysical. You be you.
