I discovered Deanna Havas in a book of essays called Social medium: artists writing; 2000-2015. The book shared part of her own twitter feed where she is outspoken about her dating life, family and the art world.

Her work Actual Person is a poem made from appropriated content from the internet which are joined together to create a poem.

Similarities in our methods are evident in this particular work as she collects conversations, statements etc from the internet and puts them in a new context like how I screenshot conversations and images from the internet to create digital collages. Her personal twitter feed is like an extension of her work as she continues to be subversive yet poetic in her tweets. This resonates with me as I see my instagram feed and online presence as an extension of myself and my work which is why I want social media to be a clear theme within my work.
