Self(ie) 2018

From Narcissus fascinated
by his own reflection
in the surface of a pond
to tourists standing in front of a monument
with their iPhone pointed at themselves:
Humanity has always felt the urge
to document themselves,
to capture a moment of perfection. 
We send satellites up into space
just so we can photograph our Earth. 
Is it self-love, 
self-research
or self-obsession?


Self(ie) is a video installation consisting of multiple screens. The screens simultaneously tell a story of self-documentation. Scroll down to get an impression of the installation.
