I have investigated the different characteristics of the human being when is online as well as the contemporary condition of the digital narcissus through the creation of a manifesto called “The digital self” as a starting point. Through several experiments over 10 months, I have examined the meanings of each point in the manifesto. This written statement was explored throughout video performances, WhatsApp conversations, a hologram and finally photographic self-portraits.
For the final exhibition, this body of work displays four portraits and a hologram which are a fragmentation of my connected self, just as they represent the universality of the “Post Internet”, tension. The artworks are manually intervened and this is because they are coming into the analogue sphere to inhabit a space beyond the digital.
