Week 1 has focused within the individual reality that we exist in. The main inspirations that helped me formulate this week set of photographs were the following narratives and facts that I was able to retrieved from surfing the web.
Russian Photographer who experiments with an interesting APP – Findface and through this app he is able to identify anonymous people he has photographed bringing to light not only the issue towards privacy and data protection, but it brings out an important element to the way we are living. The high media/ digital data is taking over our capabilities to acknowledge the individuals in front of us.#thesocialreality
Looking within the following data development, I question wether the next generation of art making, will take such an approach, and in galleries we will only have mutations
Throughout the past two weeks, I have worked upon discovering and analysing the element of social reality within the eye of a mobile phone. Through this development I started to formulate ideas that move along the elemental quality of living within such a contemporary setting of engaging and exploring the possibility to communicate with one another.
Within the work that I developed, a recurrent influential element transmitted from one work to the next. The element of constant detachment and connection, started to bring out the elemental dichotomy of the whole situation. The beauty that such a medium and interaction allows, ventures within the difficulty to resolve into the ability to connect from one matter to the next.
The sense of numbness and vernacularity that this work is providing, unveils a clear insight to the reality we are all engaging with.
