Responding to the 'Identity Algorithm' project of my graphic design course, 'Alias’ is presented here as a few sample interfaces of a prototypical ‘alias discovery program’. Supposedly, inputting a name of your target and the program will find all their related aliases, whether it is a social media username, or an intimate name called by their loved ones. When this series is finished, it should contain 12 pieces of interface design in total, each uncovering the mystery in the moment of a young woman’s seemly normal life. Each moment is connected to a specific alias that she uses, identifies, or thinks of at that time, hinting at the personal, social, and cultural struggles that she experiences beneath the masks of ordinary life.
