i am by palindromenoise i am by palindromenoise
i am | hardcover, perfect bound | 17” x 5” x .5”



After browsing countless profiles on facebook and myspace, I found it funny how people choose to protray themselves to others on the Internet. i am is a compilation of self-descriptions from the profile pages of people I came across online. I decided to combine image and text for this book. A bitmapped version of the photo that was posted on their profile page is strategically placed in certain words and glyphs to give a more detailed vision to the reader of who the person actually was that wrote the text. The phrase “i am me” is repeated in a pattern throughout the book. It serves as a reminder of the prevalence of identity on the World Wide Web, and how in reality humans aren’t really that different. What sets us all apart, however, is how we portray ourselves to others, and how people in turn perceive our existence.
