Shedding Previous Avatar Identities – Open Call!

The “Shedding Previous Avatar Identities” Project!

When do digital identities and electronic foot-prints eventually need to be let go of? Does the Internet machine actually release them? Sooner than later perhaps, we need to take action, and induce a ritual to let them go. Is your online avatar still from 2009? Do we mourn parts of a “virtual” self-identity that has passed its time, outdated and lapsed? These animations below are investigations into the sentiment.

This project is seeking collaborative contributions from the Internet at large! Create a manipulated static or animated work of digital art from your outdated digital self (past/outdated avatar) and send it here as a spiritual offering to the metaphoric graveyard for outdated-virtual-avatars and Internet Identities! Im kicking off the project with my examples below.

(This project will make a great digital storytelling assignment, use it for your class perhaps?)

Cool Apps for image manipulation:

Imaengine – Tons of filters, vector conversions, stills & video

Hyperspektiv – Tons of filters, stills and video

Glitche’ – glitche.com – the ultimate, trust me.

Glitch Studio – tons of filters and animation options

ImgPlay – GIF & Video converting app (its a beast!)
