Sfinx is a digital avatar. GL-OW created Sfinx in response to the question of how contemporary identities are portrayed and contrived through the Internet.
Concept and Process
Our interactions with others and the world around us increasingly occur through Internet platforms, enabling us to construct, edit, mimic and alter our identities. Many of these interactions are limited to the Internet and therefore our online identity is the only real validation of our existence.
Sphinx is a testament to contemporary notions of identity. Her existence is validated through the curation of her online presence. Her personality, relationships and career will grow through genuine interactions and projects that she will take on throughout her digital life.
Sphinx first appeared online in May of 2014. She was featured in One Tusk’s remix of “ Let your Hair Down Remix” released by Nylon Mag. Watch her here.
