Digital Cage explores the way in which mass surveillance and digital language influence the creation of techno-personalities.  Combining hand-sculpted and computer-generated elements to map biometric points on the subject’s face as a way to mimic facial recognition software, each portrait reveals the person's susceptibility to and culpability in their own surveillance.

 The portrait sessions are collaborative and include open conversation and free association on paper. The subject’s cage is constructed based on our conversation, and their written notes. Each subject receives two portraits, the digital cage portrait and the notes portrait.   HERE  for a write-up on the process by artist, Jesse Russell Brooks.
