We Contain
Multitudes

In today’s awareness of the world and its varying degrees of intersectionalities, we no longer exist in essentialist, singular spaces. We Contain Multitudes is an interactive web experience that provokes, investigates and reflects the multiplicity of identity within our existence through curated visual metaphors.

 

This was part of a self-driven senior degree project during my last semester at college. The title of this project is an adapted line from Walt Whitman’s “Song of Myself.”

“Identity is not as transparent or unproblematic as we think. Perhaps instead of thinking of identity as an already accomplished fact, which the new cultural practices then represent, we should think, instead, of identity as a ‘production’ which is never complete, always in process, and always constituted within, not outside, representation.”

Stuart Hall, cultural theorist
