Inside Out Logo

Insecure are a universal aspect of the human experience that we all struggle to reason, resist, rationalize and understand. This web site is the first stage of an interactive art project that will culminate in an interactive multi-media installation that will be installed in various locations, the first of which will be the Smith College campus. It is my hope that this project will illumiate the commonality of many human insecurities, regardless of cultural and geographical differences, as well as allowing audiences to explore insecirities that are unique to various cultures and gain insights into ourselves and each other as a result. In short, this is an exploration of the internal human experience. In order to create this project, I am asking people to share their insecurities with me.
