This video reflects on the individual experience of our dual, post-modern existence. The live-streamed format collapsed the gap between the physical world and our virtual self-constructed profiles, which are under constant scrutiny.
Taking course over a 24 hour period, the slow-paced video contrasts with the virtual world’s short attention span. The absence of superfluous activity aims to increase anxiety of the subject and the audience.
In this space, the subject can’t escape her reflection, symbolizing our relationship with online profiles, which accentuate self-awareness and sense of social importance. Such narcissistic behavioral patterns often play to the detriment of meaningful relationships, explaining why the subject is alone.
The sterile white space represents the perpetual need to upkeep our virtual hygiene. In reality, we are confronted by the limitations of the physical world; virtually, we are confined by the screen, a metaphor for the potential narrowing richness of life.
