Inga Mijatović and Luka Pompe
Slovenia, Italy, 2014
In a time when technology is accessible to anyone, in a time where the individual gets lost in a crowd, it is easy to feel lonely. Let art be the thread that holds us together! And let art be the divisive force that drives us apart! In a flood of visual imagery, we decide what we will claim as our own and what we will commit to memory.
Our favorite visage hides in the mirror. We enjoy looking at our reflection. Let us each create it and connect amongst ourselves! Let us look at ourselves engaged in virtual interaction with others. Let us find ourselves in the crowd.
The Selfie project began in November 2014. Anyone interested may make their contribution until the closing of the Pixxelpoint 2014 festival by uploading their selfies into the authors' database at http://goo.gl/cKeFKd.
Over the final three days of the festival, projections of the selfies will be shown to the audience:
– on Wednesday, (December 10) and Thursday (December 11), the selfies will be shown to the public in Nova Gorica.
– on the final day of the festival, Friday (December 12), the selfies will also be taken on the spot and projected into the scheme and manipulated on the spot.
