“The digital self” NODO ART RESIDENCY -Work in progress.

I will regularly update the work in progress of my year-residency, currently taking place, at NODO house, by No Lugar, Arte Contemporáneo, in my hometown, Quito-Ecuador.

Project Proposal.

The aim is to create a series of photographic and written sculptures (using text as a link between the material and digital realm), that will be part of a photographic installation that presents the characteristics of the “digital self” based on its Manifesto.
I will use “form” as a metaphor of the contemporary condition of the digital narcissus, that lives in its own world. I will create a portrait each month of the residency.
I want to reinterpret the post-digital notion with elements coming from a screen, or from an analogue machine, and also from a sculpture and make them coexist together, using this tension to create coherencies and incoherencies typical from the Post-Internet idea.

The digital self. A Manifesto

  1. The digital self is defined through interaction and without it, no longer exists.
  2. The digital self oscillates with its constant online performance, it does not have a single shape.
  3. The digital self seeks stardom through a potential increasing audience.
  4. The digital self needs affirmation, attention, something real.
  5. Ignorance is a condition of the digital self.
  6. The digital self, it is a slave of social media, an app bitch.
  7. The digital self believes in its repetitive single condition.
  8. The digital self does not have control on its own information, once it is out there, it is out there and then, who knows?
  9. The digital self comes off to defend or offend what it believes.
