OPEN SITE 7 | Open Call Program【Exhibition】
In recent years, it has become increasingly common to express their own image of themselves on social media and to look at themselves on a monitor during online meetings. It has been suggested that our self-awareness was formed by the spread of mirrors. With the invention of a vivid and inexpensive mirror in 1835, state-of-the-art optics and alter egos emerged as themes in literature. In this exhibition, the viewer’s alter ego appears in combination with contemporary technology in an attempt to depict the avatar-based self-awareness of today.
