ARTIST'S STATEMENT:

Moles is multi-media self-examination. This autobiographical web narrative uses moles, the marks on my body, as a navigational device. The moles are coordinates of a personal map, interconnected narratives on different regions of my body. Through these narratives I construct my gay identity.

The site has a clinical aesthetic look, typical of autopsy records, x-rays, or other medical procedures that fragment the body as a part of the diagnostic process. I treat the body as both a medical entity as well as an intimate site to recall memories. By setting up a tension between the personal nature of the story and the clinical design of the site, I am commenting on how our notion of public and private is continuously challenged by the increasingly technologized environment in which we live.
