The temporary no filter exhibition offers Instagram fans the opportunity to photograph themselves in 24 photo sets. With the installation, the organizers want to connect art with social media. The exhibition started on Friday in the inner city.
On Instagram and Facebook, numerous women and men present themselves in self-confident pose. They are very stylish, smile at the camera and eat hip food. Social media is the perfect place to show who you are or who you want to be. As soon as the photo is online, there are already the first acknowledgments that the recording will be nice to others as well. Likes have become a reward, which also addict.
The Digital Flow Of Selfie And Social Media
It shows the enthusiasm for the fact that with the selfie in the popular culture, which is otherwise washed over by retro waves, something new emerged: a photographic self-image that is different than that, with a camera view in the mirror, with the self-timer or one’s own face directed camera arises. The selfie includes the reflection in the display, the oblique perspective, the arm in the picture. It is not meant for storage, but especially for sending, posting, commenting; it shows an individual in the digital flow.
A fully mirrored room; there are small LEDs that change their color. Hard to tell where the room ends and the reflections begin. Finally a real illusion, that of infinity. It is not perfect and unfortunately only a copy of the infinity mirror rooms.
The highlight of the Dream Machine: a completely blue room with a ball pool. Shoes off and important tip: Mobile phone to full volume, so you can call it and find it again when it falls into the balls. And we have to say, diving in here is fun. And it’s even an illusion that works on the radio: the soft plastic balls sound like water.
