Installation which transforms a selfie to a gravel - Viskas apie interjerą
2018 April 10

I don’t even know if I’m successful in writing smoothly and logically what emotions and thoughts this installation awakes. Its thought is extremely deep but it’s possible that I can’t translate it properly. It’s dedicated to reflect life problems of teenagers (I’d think it fits to everyone) and I’d say that the best way has been chosen for that. The authors PanGenerator called this installation: everything saved will be lost.

During the installation a person makes selfie on a mobile phone – that selfie is moved to 1x1m large screen. After a moment the face starts falling down and pouring until it becomes black gravel. How fragile! How temporary!

A fear to lose digital information and files is so big that it’s become one of the main reasons why contemporary youth feels stressed and anxious (and not only youth). What happens if my photos disappear? Will that make my past a zero? Will I remember anything if I don’t have photos? What happens if I don’t make photos of a new purchase or how funny I’m spending time with my friends, in the concert or during the holiday? Will that mean that I didn’t visit that place, didn’t do that, lived a boring life or didn’t live at all?

The lower part of installation looks like a tombstone (and the sign # is put on it with a reason), as in any case we will all die, therefore, 1000 selfies will not make you immortal and they’ll lose their sense. I’d think that there’s sense, as that’s inheritance and memorization for children/grandchildren but that indeed don’t have to be your selfies.

With this installation the authors of the idea also want to pay attention to Instagram Stories and Snapchat apps which show photos only for a limited time period. We save our photos expecting that they’ll remain forever but you never know when they disappear due to any technical reasons. Bam and that’s all! Not only your photos but the whole information about you will disappear. Does that threaten you? Think about it.
