VERNISSAGE: ON CONCAVE MIRRORS

 ABOUT:  The short exhibition unfolds a live coding performance from 10th March 2018 in Kulturfolger, through an installation format, that previously explored the melting borders between internet profiles and played with a fictional narration divided in eight notes of a future present.  In the struggle for identity, the manifold of representations and self-made constructions of the individuals that currently over-floods the internet, shows a paradoxical state. The individual cannot exist without the acknowledgement of society. Every self-presentation shared over the internet confirms a reciprocal inter-dependency in the seek of uniqueness, which consequently becomes invisible in the noise.    BIO:  Andrés Villa Torres  Born in Mexico City (Mexico) in 1985. Since 2012, Andrés has been active as a media artist, performer and researcher in the field of contemporary  and future technologies. He mainly works with data, web, algorithms, electronic and audiovisual media. His current work deals with issues of data politics, technology and digital society.
