Drawing from creative non-fiction, aphorisms, conceptual art, and community-based practices, JillWrites: On Art & Poetics is a meta-performance in the quest to delineate, document, and describe the self.  Jill Jichetti, under the name JillWrites, is a writer and installation artist whose work explores the performativity of digital media. Jill has been working in self-portraiture through digital photography since 2005, before social media became mainstream. In this work, Jill prompts important philosophical questions on post-modern and post-cyber notions of subjectivity.
