Who are we, really? Identity is an amorphous, malleable concept that haunts human consciousness at almost every moment. Whether telling a pushy sales person that this shirt, ‘just isn’t me’; having a skull and crossbones inked on a forearm; or updating an online status; we are valiantly attempting to answer the question of ‘who am I’ for ourselves and the others we encounter. We want to show the world who we are, and be accepted, esteemed or valued for that presentation. Every detail, our style of dress, our haircut, hair color, our tone of voice, our choice of words, the scars and emblems that we ecru upon our skin throughout our lifetime; tell the story of ‘us’. Where does the story stop? Join us this week for a special two-part episode that asks the question are we all, just a story?
