OFF – Les gens pixélisés de Johan Rosenmunthe

05/12/2010 // photographie

Une série de photographies de l’artiste Johan Rosenmunthe. Des personnages pixelisés, dans des décors le plus réel  possible. L’artiste a utilisé pour cela des photos trouvées sur Facebook, de gens qu’il ne connaissait que par Internet. Une façon de réfléchir à la place de l’homme et de nos personnalités dans ce nouvel environnement dématérialisé.

Through digital communication like Facebook, Twitter, online dating and personal websites, the representation of our personality becomes more and more streamlined. We have the possibility to project an idea of how we are as a person into the world around us, but with the constant option of censoring information and invent fictional characteristics. Never have we had access to so much information about each other, and never has the information been so unreliable. In this project I have downloaded pictures of ‘friends’ that I only know through the Internet, and given them a new context. The persons are only visible through a digital representation, while the surroundings are as analog as possible. The sceneries are photographed places that invited to interaction – places that missed the company of human beings. The milieu adds a new meaning to the way the digital personas act, and gives their simplified characteristics meaning and personality again, by adding a setting to their digital components.
