Immediately recognizable by her bold, colourful makeup looks, Jessie Edelstein is exploring what it means to be a ‘digital girl,’ with her latest audiovisual project Jessie.Mp3
. Having already released two singles under Jessie.Mp3, Content.MP4
, Edelstein is currently at work on an EP that explores the relationship between the digital and real world. Her makeup and style feel like a hyperpop star obsessed with the 2000s and influenced by digital culture. She imagines a world in which digital plastic surgery exists, allowing a person to simply make a new face with the click of a button. We spoke with Edelstein about her music, queer identity, and self-expression in the digital space, particularly about how the face can be used as a platform to express one’s identity.
