My name is Jamie Cottle

"I am a transfemme non-binary poet, performance and digital artist. I work with Facetune the mobile editing app typically used to discreetly conceal spots or slim waistlines to interrogate authenticity and deconstruct the notion that performative, decorative or altered identities are in some way superficial.

An inherent part of this process is therefore also testing the limits of a software designed for an alternate purpose and using the failures of the app to develop a clear aesthetic of attempted refinement.

This series focuses on the theme of activism and revolution through the queering of bodies."
