JOHANNA KRIMMEL – BLACK MIRROR
2018, Oil on acrylic glas, silicone, interactive projection
Self-expression, self-optimization, self-distortion, self-evaluation: the review and display of one's own image has become ubiquitous and self-evident with mobile devices. At the same time, the limits of taste and privacy shift in the visual flow of seeing and being seen. Social contact needs are satisfied with voyeuristic mechanisms. Visual habits and self-image are more and more determined by the smartphone format, filters, distortions, applications.
"Black Mirror" will be on display at Designhaus Darmstadt from 16.8. – 9.9.2018.
