About Daisy: Daisy’s work seeks to understand how a body exists in the digital world – does it exists as a mist on the screen? Is it a set of binary codes? Is it constituted by the internet’s signs, symbols, hashtags and emoji’s? Her ongoing series of self-portraits for Instagram, animated video art and triple-appropriated drawings raise questions on queer identity and feminism in the digital age but more pertinently they lead an analysis of childhood development in the post-internet contemporary era. Her fine art background and continual use of observational drawing underpin her analytical and deconstructive use of digital mediums as she probes and prods the body of a virtual age.

Daisy has shown her digital work in pop-up shows at the Tate Modern/Britain and BFI. She has given talks on the post-internet identity at digital art shows and recently she took her Augment Self-Portrait Videos out to St Petersburg. She was awarded an Artists-Network grant to support her research in these areas.

In her practice she uses Lens Studio, Spark AR and Blender. She currently is collaborating with a computer artist on building an Unreal VR experience.
