Mirror, light projection
A mirrored light projection of screen tests of the artist divided into 9 orthogonal squares. Users create a “profile” on social media in order to reflect themselves and document who they are or rather whom they prefer their audience to perceive them. This idea emphasizes my belief that people have fragmented personas and use media platforms such as Instagram to bring them to life. Specifically, Instagram uses a grid format, which further filters what we survey and how we would like to be surveyed. The subject of the screen test confronts the camera recording and by default confronts the audience engaging with the video. This situation challenges the viewer to either engage directly with the piece or to observe it from afar.
