In the project Inside/Outside the artist addresses our inability to transfer our conscience into the digital world. As we are all consumed whit how our digital persona will appear online in form of a picture, quote or 'like', we forget to reflect on how would our inner, you might call it spiritual, life be projected digitally.
The artist tries to convey this in a series of rendered pictures and videos, obtained by 3D scanning a real human body and then transferring it into a 'computerised world'. As the post human view thinks of the body as the original prosthesis, the scanned body also (ironically) finds itself empty after entering the digital world. The hollow husk is looked upon from the inside to discover an ecosystem that was previously not visible to the human eye and reveals itself as an airy dimension supported by the remnants of the physical body. The supports act as a subsidiary structure for our otherworldly conscience in a world where the informational pattern is privileged over a material embodiment.
The pictures give us time for introspection while making us see the embodiment of our conscience in the digital world and time to imagine how it would look like to feel, think and empathise enclosed in a virtual body. The artist envisions this project as both a way to visualise our obsession with data and the digital, but also to cope with our day to day digital frustrations and meditate upon our digital selves.
The project has been presented at the group exhibition ‘USB Shuffle’, Institut für Alles Mögliche, Berlin, Germany in 2017 and was selected for the 'Triennial of Young Artists - Premiera 2018' at the Centre for Contemporary Art, Celje, Slovenia. The project will be displayed at the 'Bodies in Movement' group exhibition between the 20th - 28th February 2019 at the Millepiani gallery, Rome.
