After deciding to take forward my identity project I created a mood board showing model positioning ideas. I want to take ‘public’ identities further and show how people create and build their identities through appearances.
One of my initial ideas was to create different public identities through make-up and costume. Similarly to Cindy Sherman I wanted to use the same model with different costumes to show the characterisation of identity and how you can create different identities even though its the same person. Previously in Identity I found there were so many different persona through teenage ages when they showed their public identities which I want to create in one person.
Above the mood board shows different characters and identities that I want to use, showing drag queens,chavs, pin up girls etc. Here visually aiding the creation of characters
