1 I use the camera to claim ownership of my image in
2 reaction to the violence of viewing and being viewed.
4 I want to reclaim the portrayal of self in opposition  
5 to the bodies, stories, and emotions that are deemed   
6 acceptable enough to occupy  physical and digital
7 space.
9 I use my body as a medium through performance and
10 self-portraiture to resist the disembodiment of
11 surveillance in the digital era.
13 I participate in the performance of the sexualized and
14 gendered self online and irl and investigate the
15 feedback response of these digital and physical spaces.
17 I aim to interrogate the role of photography and 
18 image creation in the attention economy and the role
19 of the self as social currency across digital
20 landscapes.
