This video shows the process of me writing all sorts of qualities I wish I possess in the eyes of others on a mask, to eventually wearing the mask and framing the camera at an angle as if taking a selfie. The action of wearing the mask shows how my alter ego may not be completely representational of who I Read more →

Video Selfie: Binge Porn is a candid one-minute artistic video selfie on my obscure desire to junk binge assuming my mukbang digital alter ego. It plays on the notions of Food Porn and mukbang personalities that have assimilated into the isolation of those who eat behind their computer screens. Live developed film filter takes you back to a time where Read more →

Angry Women and their Entanglement

Su Xian

@ Shu

Annie Abraham’s Angry Women is a piece hosted on webcam. The webcam acts as a facilitator for the women’s anger. The purpose of this artwork is to make a stand on female anger through angry discussions on the internet. Five performances were carried out with a full womans panel. Another had only men and the other two mixed with female. Read more →

Very good observation of how work such as Annie Abrahams can allow us to think about our own entanglements, disruptions, frustrations and even anger on the Internet. What do you think of Angry Women? Is it a piece you would want to participate in? Do you think it has value as a way for women to vent their frustration? These are important questions the piece is exploring.

These days social media has forced us to comfort to a certain image that we think we should be. For example, women are expected to be pretty and wear makeup to be socially(or virtually) popular.  Men check to see if their hair is in place before they post a photo on Facebook or Instagram.

My video selfie is about conforming to Read more →

In this 1 minute short clip, I am a (rainbow) Ghost.

What’s so great about being a ghost, you ask? Ghosts are just a figment of the imagination, yes. But think about it, whats not great about not having any responsibilities? Have no care in the world, and you can float around happy and be nonchalant. Studies? Relationships? Read more →

I Am Not Me

@ 遠き世に

once more do we come to start anew, where the waves ebb and flow, eroding what it can, with what little power it has, until the seas dry up, leaving nothing but flecks of salt, flecks of sand

and just like that, we keep suspending thought again, and again, till we are decisive, for you, me, the world, and all of Meaning

For my 1 minute video selfie, I decided to do one of those Take On Me video memes with the icon head turn at the start. The original music video by a-ha depicted two settings, one being real life and one being an sketchy, illustrated fictional setting. By applying this outline filter, I wanted to show that I like to Read more →

Abstract

This is a research on the Scienartist Annie Abrahams and one example of her scienartistic experiment called Angry Women. Scienartist (probably created by me) here refers to people who work with science and art. The experiment was set in the ‘third space’ and conducted with a group of female participates. I concluded my research with open questions.

Good questions! You might considering trying to answer them, particularly the one about how this form of expression is not typical of our social media interactions. You remember we discussed how we filter ourselves on social media. Do you think Angry Women is unfiltered and so perhaps there is a greater range of expressivity? You asked great questions, which is very important, but I would like to know what you think about these questions.

@ Daphne Ngatimin

Annie Abrahams was born in the Netherlands and has been based in France since 1985. She holds a PhD in Biology from the University of Utrecht and is a graduate in fine arts from the Academie voor Beeldende Kunsten, Arnhem. Annie Abrahams’s work reflects on the idea of networking technologies as well as installations and performances in physical space. Read more →

Excellent Daphne! You perfectly captured the intent of Annie Abrahams' work and in particular Angry Women. I was really glad to see you make the comparison to our study of Facebook identity management, and how essentially Abrahams is trying to break free of that kind of clean control, as you point out, to explore the messier side of human behavior on the Internet. Great job.

Alter Ego: Choose

Jocelyn

@ hello

For this Microproject, we were asked to express our alter ego. I imagine myself to be able to afford the time of day to choose which mode I want to live my life in, whether it is in black and white, in full colour or in slow motion. In my video, I explore my ability to take my time to Read more →
