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.
