Desiree Holman: Masks, Avatars and Self.






Desiree Holman (1974,California) is an interdisciplinary artist and video specialist.






From her Statement of Purpose (2009):
“The driving question is this: what do games of make-believe,
like the ones I create in my work or the ones created in multi-user online games or elsewhere,
tell us about human desire, behavior & values in the `real’ world?

Stated differently, what can
we recognize about ourselves by peering into alternate fantasy worldscapes?”.






A living avatar of self.
