Instagram Filter Lenses
Is our phone an extension of our bodies? Wherever you are based, most of us live partially online. A distorted reality where we create an alter ego, a virtual being that lives 'la vie en rose'. We show the best part of our experiences. Feet in the sand, airplane wings, decorated cappuccino's, and late drinks with friends. What if we would also share our existential crisis moments, our eight hours routine in front of a desk, the broken eggs we just bought in the store?
Instagram filtered lenses capture the paradox of today's culture, where we are filtering our realities in a real-life. The hybrid experience we are immersed, a non-binary spot between the digital and physical world, the virtual or the real one. Are you willing to take them off?
