‘DoppelDoppel’ by McKenna Graham

McKenna Graham is curious about how we self-identify. Her multimedia, interactive art exhibition “DoppelDoppel” is based on the doppel or double; her interests focus on the real self vs. the virtual self. “[It’s] the vast chasm that contains both who we are and who people think we are,” Graham explains. “What does it mean ‘to be’ in light of the technological revolution? Using the domestic realm as the original threshold between public and private life, this work explores the fracture that exists between direct experience and its virtual reflection…” The closing reception is Friday, April 1 from 7-9 p.m.
