IOTA: DATA presents the commission Important Men – Jennifer Chan

IOTA Institute has taken on a commissioning project inviting artists J.R. Carpenter (UK), Jennifer Chan (Ontario), and Liz Solo (Newfoundland) to produce new web-projects.

Jennifer Chan’s “Important Men” looks like a lifestyle website and modeling portfolio. Chan was inspired by various popular, online initiatives to reform “toxic masculinity” and sought to create her own oeuvre of male portraiture, drawing from the important masculine influences in her life. Profiled are her current life partner, father, closest friends from different periods of her life, ex-lover and an acquaintance by which she is deeply inspired, all as idealized stock objects.
