D5 is a 3D animation set in a virtual world occupied by the central character, “Ben_1167”, a digital copy of a person created from databased information involved in the application and subsequent use of a credit card. The narrative is framed by postmodern notions of human identity as a multiplicitous, fluid, construct of discourse and the notion of the computer database as a form of discourse with the power to reconstitute the self. Through my creative practice, it is my aim to create an aesthetic that is suggestive of the theories underpinning my narrative. I will explore the effect of the uncanny, achieved when the familiar and the strange overlap. Conveying a sense of the familiar will involve the incorporation of hyperrealistic 3D models and motion captured movement. Conveying a sense of the strange will involve the distortion and disruption of form, time and space within the virtual 3D world that I will create.
