digital print on aluminium 70 x 70 cm (each) 2009
clockwise: 6 months; 12 months; 18 months; 24 months
The photos are overlaps of avatars (images used in chat everyone chooses to represent themselves) of people i met chatting.
I’ve chosen the virtual world of chat as a meeting place par excellence of contemporary, where everyone can put on fleeting identities, in “low definition”, hard to determine, controlled by pixels, a place where everyone can be anybody …also himself.
Avatar is a work in progress: I’ll keep on to overlap avatars and every 6 months i’ll show the result; the final images represent sediments of meeting, of friendships… Of memories.
