multiplidentity: iterations of self
senior thesis project, 2005

From the original release:

Visual Studies senior Matt Leiker explores the interaction of identity and self through creative repetition and duplication. His artwork is a realistic digital manipulation touching on the themes of multiple personalities, self-projection and interaction, the nocturnal self, mindless clones, homoeroticism, imaginary friends, schizophrenia, personal space, and anything else you can read into it. He exploits these interactions to comment on society & social acceptability, identity, industry, relationships, personal space, fantasy and reality.

All of these images were originally displayed as a digital composite on photo paper (~54” by 36”). They required a painstaking rotoscopic process performed in photoshop, as well as the addition of some deft shading and shadows for realism.

Check out the archived microsite. Curious how I made it? Peer behind-the-scenes if you dare.
