AN ONTOLOGY FOR A FRAGILE MALE EGO






An Ontology for A Fragile Male Ego is an ongoing series of large-format illustrations imagining the ontology behind male identity existing within an infinitely complex new media age.

Computer-drawn, hand-finished Illustrations developed as visually compelling 3D abstractions of the mechanisms in consistent development (2013-), operating as open worksheets for dialogue with computer scientists and AI specialists around the ontologies at play that define the construction of self.
