KissMeis a personal response to the popular 1990's to 2000's program called Kiss Dolls, or Kisekae Set System.
All collages are created from downloaded sets that were taken from Otakuworld.com, which has the largest collection of all Kiss Dolls sets created by individual user and shared online through websites. Otakuworld.com is the most popular website, and the most influential on the community dedicated to the Kisekae Set System.
In these programs you can dress up different popular Japanese anime or American-animated characters. Some are hand drawn, some are edited from clips from the shows, and some even have music from the show playing while you play. This program created an early outlet for the Otaku community to feel connected to their favorite characters, and personalize that experience.
This book is a mock-up found collection of collages and journal entries of an obsessive fan, in love and desperate.
Purchased by and held at the Frances Mulhall Achilles Library at the Whitney Museum of American Art, The New York Public Library Artist Book Collection, and the School of the Arts Institute of Chicago. Featured as "Best Of New York Art Book Fair 2016" by Printed Matter.
