self-portrait through the prism
Advanced Photography Project

The contemporary selfie is, in itself, the remediation of photography, renouncing the analogic role of light and diaphragm, condensing, in an aggregate of instant pixels, the face of who creates it. Images deformed by technology turn up as indissociable from the object that materialised them; volatile, innocuous, digital self-portraits that are part of the modern imagetic culture, destined to proliferation but not to slow contemplation. In a voyeuristic perspective, images appear decontextualised and isolated, and there is a deconstruction of the subject’s identity as the moment of the selfie moves across space. The reference to what is real is dissolved, and the illusion of technology is exposed.
