FRAGMENTS OF THE DIGITAL SELF *
I have investigated the different characteristics of the human being online and the current condition of the digital narcissus by creating a manifesto called “The digital self” as a starting point. Through several experiments over ten months, I have examined the meanings of each point in the manifesto. The manifesto was explored through video performances, WhatsApp conversations, a hologram, and photographic self-portraits.
For the final exhibition, this body of work displays four portraits and a hologram which are the fragmentation of my connected self, just as they represent the universality of the “Post Internet” tension. The artworks -manually intervened- because they are coming into the analog sphere to inhabit a space beyond the digital.
