I am deeply consumed,
I am deeply committed,
I am becoming,
How does one have a genuine and meaningful experience as an imagined self?
From surfing trains and taming horses to wandering the desert, Cowboy holds a deeper inquiry into the existence of human persona beyond fantasy. By committing entirely to the iconography of a cowboy, I seek to expose desires and vulnerabilities that exist in our pursuit to form identity.
Cowboy is an interactive site adaptable solo work
