Final paper here.
My final piece, the capstone of the <META>Methods research project, is entitled Why Do I Hate Myself?. It is an interactive, mixed-media piece combining performance, video installation and algorithmic art. It uses the data and algorithms from the prior two pieces but, by combining data with performance, adds a level of artistic interpretation. This piece is intended to inspire an emotional experience for users because the video is an abstract account of my personal journey with body dysmorphia. The data visualization accompanying the piece was created using a unique set of search words that deal with concepts related to the female form.
