Filippo Minelli, Contradictions (Ongoing)
The aim of the project is to point out the gap between the reality we live in and the ephemeral world of technologies.
Writing the names of anything connected with 2.0 experiences in the slums of the third world as to show the idealization connected with these experiences, underlining the difference between what we decide to show about us and our reality and how the world actually is, how we actually are and live.
2.0 technologies and the marketing behind them are characterized by a religious veneration, as also said by Leander Kaheny in his “Cult of Mac” book. Users are pushed to live with increasing abstraction from reality, living technologies only as an ideal reality.
Project realized (until now) between Cambodia, Vietnam, Mali, China, Italy.
Identities by Ana Oliveira is a joyous exploration of the toll of time. Ana asked senior citizens to find their most treasured portraits from their young adulthood, and then she recreated the portraits in the modern time. The side-by-side display of the portraits is stunning. There is no doubt it is the same person as you see the similarities in bone structure and eyes, but time has played its games on each of the people. The eyes are the most telling part in each picture, where you can still see the love of life shining out, even though the faces have changed.
Identities I covers people in many different age ranges, but the most stunning portraits are of seniors where up to 60 years in time have elapsed from the original portrait.
