And Give Us Our Daily Voyeurism

„Currently, the privacy or the private space are almost impossible to conceive. With easy access to information, the society has developed an interdependent type of system that reveals and follows others’ activity. The temptation to “spy” seems inescapable. People control increasingly harder their desire to search through the images, the objects and the places of others, as if our life becomes indistinguishable from the lives of others. The media that feed this phenomenon are at the service of new technologies of “information and communication” like social networks . The idea that started this project is to represent a new form of voyeurism, common, social, accepted as routine – Daily Voyeurism – without it being considered a paraphilia-type dysfunction.
The research of the subject implies an experimental approach that is documentarist and social-exhibitionist. The resulting images and objects are a subversive reflection on the way we live and manifest when we think no one is watching us.”
