Daphna Horenczyk: DIORAMA:stories
In times of a share and like economy, the value of real-life experience is dwarfed by the ever-inflating value of the story told about the experience. Documentation, manipulation and online-reproduction is taking over, creating alternative realities. In our constant consumption of information (our feed), images and ideas appear in random eclectic juxtaposition---each image affecting our perception of the next one as we scroll down. Our emotions are jolted and our capacity for empathy is reduced. DIORAMA:stories dissects the image/story-making process exposing the audience to both the online stories and their making. Morphing images in a constantly-changing diorama aims to subvert the idea: “If it wasn’t documented it didn’t happen”.
