Who is your other you?
Exploring identity through image and performance has been influenced by cultural icons such as David Bowie and artists like Andy Warhol and Cindy Sherman. Me, My selfie and Major Tom is a free project open to young people interested in exploring their ‘other selves' in workshops about persona, selfies, avatars and ideas of putting your image out there in contemporary culture.
Over four creative sessions, lead by professional artists, the project explores ways of making - and mashing up - self portraits using photography, video, projections, online spaces and live performance.
quick, simple tasks, such as collage persona making and layered filming produce high-quality artistic outcomes
