Personae explores how the human spirit, as expressed through dreams, fantasy, and imagination, can endure and transcend to provide perspective on lived experiences.
David’s process invites participants to transform into their alter ego or a character of their choice, enabling freedom of expression and experimentation. And yet, in doing so, the subjects can explore and reveal more profound and hidden parts of themselves.

Working with stigmatized and marginalized groups, David aims to open a new path for dialog between the spectator and the subject, an opportunity for the participants to express and explore, and bring attention to critical social issues by generating fictionalized content.
