The Identity Project by Sarah Deragon
What (if anything) did this series reveal to you about the labels we choose for ourselves?
One thing that has been really fascinating to me is how labels change over time. In fact, when I look at the history of the labels I’ve used to define myself, it was quite a journey. When I came out, I was a lesbian and then I was queer and then I was femme and then I was a glitter femme and now I’m a queer femme. I imagine that my labels might change again in the next 10 years and I love how the words that I’ve used to define myself mark my personal queer history. This project reminds us that we’re always growing and changing. Finding words that resonate with who we are or what we’re attracted to is powerful.
Ilse Leenders - Mimicry
The inspiration of the series Mimicry came from the uniformity of the human beings.
People from whom the identity is missing and those who are inconspicuous in our society. Just like animals they adapt to their environment. Visually in this series it is shown by the use of similar costumes, position and sex.
Mimicry has been published in Eyemazing issue #2, 2004.

weirdly it all seems to suit everyone
Natural History Museum, London
When I was a kid I basically wanted to live inside the world of Myst. It’s rare when I can see a place in the real world that hits every childhood myst button that is now built into my system, but the Turda Salt Mine in Transylvania (Salina Turda) hits every one of them. This is now a history museum about salt mining.
Be my home please.
