I SEE FACES I SEE LEGS

Iseefaces is a popular Internet tag used for images or inanimate objects that appear to have a face. This web-based installation collects photos posted on the social picture sharing service Instagram tagged  #iseefaces and connect them to photos tagged #iseelegs putting them into a new context. Viewers can flick trough images by turning two dials on the side and add to the art piece by uploading images tagged appropriately. The installation updates it self every two and a half minutes to include any new images.

VENUS REBORN

Venus reborn is a crowd-sourced replica of Botticelli’s Birth of Venus on Instagram. Each contributor is given a slice of the original image and asked to make their own version. When using my custom created tag #venusreborn and posted the right order, the photos appear as a full image on the Instagram thumbnail page. I printed the images from the two latest versions of project and mix and matched them to a new art piece.

Search for the hash tag #venusreborn on the Instagram phone app to see the original examples.

CONFESSION CHAIR

This confessional-like installation plays the 20 newest videos tagged #confession from the 6 seconds video sharing service Vine. After every 20 the website refreshes to include any new videos. The #confession hash tag is not constructed like the former ones. This installation is a comment to the way we use social media to share our innermost thoughts.
