New Stuff and Inspiration
French artist Antoine Geiger “SUR-FAKE” series shows us how we are getting sucked into our phones.
“This work is called « SUR-FAKE » in reference to a previous project called « SUR-FACE ». It [places] the screen as an object of ‘mass subculture,’ alienating the relation to our own body, and more generally to the physical world. I wanted to come back to the idea of these faked identities, over-exposed, sucked by the digital gulf that breaks the relation to ‘real’, to bring back a selffocused image of the individual. What interests me in this texture of sucked faces, is the the over-exposure gradually allows a very organic dimension, as well as digital, to render something quite disturbing.” – Antoine Geiger
