Hashtags are a common way to speak of the self and to connect with other people. Hashtags can speak about daily life, growing trends, or to describe what we see or how we feel.

What Is Your #? is an art piece that starts with a survey asking you - our family, friends, internet network fellows - which hashtag would best speak about you today? And, if you have time and interest, why not ask yourself this same question next week and for the full year?

This survey is part of How We See Our Selves, an ongoing collaboration between Arts Cabinet fellows, artist Lizzy De Vita and socio-anthropologist Annabelle Boissier.
