The world of modern media gives evidences of availability of public information for every user. But over time, private sites and dating applications of the virtual world started to input a paid option to view questionnaires, blurring the main photo into an abstract color spot that visually resembles a person’s aura. So what is the power of modern virtual space in, if not in accessibility?
The project inspired by images from local resources for dating and questionnaires of local residents. The artist analyzes the parallel of digital privacy and reality distorted in mirrors. Thus, every visitor to the exhibition will become part of the art project.
Materials: mirror, enamel.
