DE(MONSTER)ATE

BOOK/3D WEB
2020


DE(MONSTER)ATE is an exploration of media theories that investigate the complex relationship of identity and technology. The narrative is rooted in Donna Haraway's quote, "These boundary creatures are, literally, monsters, a word that shares more than its root with the verb to demonstrate. Monsters signify." The book features work that forecasts the symbiotic entanglements of humans and technology. The project includes a traditional book with a companion digital chapter, viewable at www.demonsterate.xyz.    


This is a WIP that is to be completed May 2020.




SPREADS

DIGITAL CHAPTER

For the final chapter of the book, I decided that it would be a compelling space to practice all of the various media theories that I learned in the research process. I iterated in different forms and new media processes but ultimately ended up using 3D modeling software to create a digital chapter that reflects the researched elements of Post-Structuralism and Post-Modernism. The chapter title is New Media as Post. You can visit the WIP digital chapter at www.demonsterate.xyz or view the most recent model below.
