Inspired equally by drag culture and video game aesthetics, “A Slippery Place” touches on themes of identity, embodiment, and fantasy. Through a process of converting digital 3D renderings into paper models, I have constructed drag-influenced costumes, wigs, and masks that I wear for this series of self-portraits. By staging these photographs within sets created from images of video game environments, I am interested in the queering of virtual spaces and blurring the binary of the digital and the physical.
