For the cover Feature of AAP’s Issue 127, multimedia artist Simon Fujiwara spoke to contributor Frances Arnold about his latest works, which revolve around Who, the cartoon bear seen on this issue’s cover, who is on a quest to define themself in a world full of projected personas and images. Tracing the turns in Fujiwara’s practice, Arnold reveals his evolving approach to understanding identity-construction.
