“Today you are you, that is truer than true, there is no one alive who is youer than you.”
Hello and welcome to your virtual WebQuest, Un-Masking Identity.
My name is Victoria Davenport. I am a student at Penn State, studying art education, and I am so excited to start this journey of self-discovery with you!
In this virtual quest, we will explore how others define us and more importantly how we define ourselves. We will peel back the layers that serve others, dig down to our core and figure out what makes you … YOU!
People are universally similar in their goals, values and innate needs. However, there is no one else who has experienced life as you have. You are a complicated individual that is truly unique.
Traditionally, masks are used to disguise identity. But in this project, we are going to accentuate our personality using a mask as our tool!
Your first step is to explore the resources below, watch the videos, and note artist’s work that you admire. While exploring, think about who you are and what defines the life you live.
Watch this video about artists exploring their identities!
These next examples are online vision boards. Pinterest is a vision board that I use to research and combine all my ideas in one place and incorporate other sources like artist’s and their work.
What is a vision board?
A vision board is a tool that displays images to help focus on a specific outcome. Most often they are used for life goals, however, I find them very helpful in exploring art projects. Below are my vision boards.
