This project is based on the diversity of New York City’s student population. Students used their portraits, and through a hands-on, cut-and-paste process, mixed parts of their faces in order to create a hybrid “person.” The idea behind this work is to reflect all the diversity within New York City, and show that we are really one people.

Kostas Kiritsis is an artist and educator. The above project was created in the spring of 2022.
