Identity

For our final project, I’m considering working with something that can help classify identity. Identity is so complicated, but I feel like these two images do a great job of trying to tie identity in with (1) expressions and (2) where people live. The first is more commonly thought of – so and so always smiles this certain way or makes this certain funny face, but the second isn’t always thought of; trying to identity who lives where and humanize a non-human building. It may seem like just another government project but seeing images of those who live there really gives insight to the demographic and ethnocultural composition of the building’s residents which I find quite intriguing. So perhaps that will help me with my thoughts.
