Binary (tentative title) is an in progress photographic project that discusses issues of identity in an increasingly digital world. Through a technique known as databending, descriptors, such as the name, race, and gender of the individuals in the photographs have been integrated into the very code that underlies and actualizes the digital image. In effect, the physical representation of each subject has infiltrated his or her respective digital representation. As a result of this infiltration, the code, a sort of digital DNA, becomes corrupted and the combined representative self, distorted.
