Entry Description:

Born Nowhere is a social media art project that uses Facebook as a platform for crowd-sourcing identities. By using self-portraits and modifying them via digital techniques, the photographer transforms facial characteristics, giving herself a new personality.
She invites Facebook users to share their thoughts, comments and interpretation of characters photographs posted on Facebook creating a flexible interaction framework and an unbounded socio-cultural experience. The users comments about each character inform and help to create a unique persona with its own name, life and characteristics. Bringing together comments from Facebook users, the artist constructs the characters bio.
