The I Behind The Mask is an online, interactive project exploring the ‘artificiality of woman’ in contemporary culture. The poems have been generated from a series of online searches around their content, several of which you can follow up for yourself by clicking on the hyperlink sections of the text.
By presenting this project on the internet, the superficial qualities of the world wide web are also addressed.
Who is the ‘I’ behind the lines, who is the ‘I’ behind the masquerade of femininity? Furthermore, who am I and what is my relation to the project as a whole?
Without supposing an answer, the piece invokes a ripple effect of questions surrounding the topics and is able to engage with other related articles thanks to the ‘tagging’ feature enabled on the wordpress blogging site.
