If beauty is in the eye of the beholder, where does self-worth reside? 

UGLY ME is a multi-media installation that explores the interplay between appearance and self-worth through collage, fashion photography, distorted selfies and spoken prose. Twelve original works composed and read by 2012 Jack Straw Writer Gabriela Denise Frank play as a backdrop to a series of comical personal images and large-scale typographic collage. Visitors are encouraged to listen, linger and contribute their own selfies to the investigation.

If you would like more information, or to listen to a podcast interview about the project, visit UGLY ME at Jack Straw’s website.

This project is supported in part by award from 4Culture.
