Identity is a complex, multi-faceted, often fragmented negotiation of social subjects and actors, yet it remains a central motif of human existence. While conscious creation of identity is more prevalent than ever, the emergence of mass social media also encourages the individual to create not only a self-identity, but an external presentation of that self, and alternate selves.

The "selfie" is the perfect materialization of this duality, as it produces an ephemeral identity struggling for greater recognition.
