An Illuminated iDentityCurator: David Hanes
An Illuminated iDentity brings together nine artists exploring what cultural identity and individuality look like in an increasingly immersive digital world. As technology is integrated with daily life, presentations of identity are frequently mediated through this cybernetic lens. An Illuminated iDentity questions what it means to be an individual and how our cultural identities are formed when narratives merge exponentially with digital technologies.
