If you like, take a look at the paper about adolescence. I investigated what adolescence means across cultural and digital divides told through the eyes of visual artist Tara Knight, including an analysis of Hatsune Miku, Japan’s most popular teen vocaloid character.
I conclude that Knight’s work with Hatsune Miku challenges the notion that adolescence is a life stage we outgrow. Miku reveals that digital technology, when applied to art and culture, allows even the most socially fixed among us can regain access to many possible identities through creative expression.
