Virtual Eye: An Exploration of Social Media Portraiture24th October 2019
Location: Towner Art Gallery, Devonshire Park, College Road, Eastbourne
The objects with which we surround ourselves create incidental self-portraits. Many share such portraits in a stream on social media. Using Twitter, the Virtual Eye project seeks to engage in a conversation about these objects to present intentional self-portraits. Digital glass boxes, large enough to accommodate an adult, celebrate these precious collections of personal objects so describing the wonderful, complex and intricate interactions that make a self-portrait.
I will present Virtual Eye to the Blue Monkey Network audience, along with input from some of the collaborators who have contributed objects to help build their virtual portraits.
Thursday 24th October, 6pm – 8pm
at Towner, Devonshire Park, College Road, Eastbourne, BN21 4JJ
