About

What is left of... is a bodies of seven text-based works that examines the concepts of presence and absence in the light of the changes new technologies have brought in the definition of the self.

 

At a time where our identity is constantly split between analogue and digital self, living every moment in a state of semi-presence where a vibration of our phone can withdraw us instantly from the physical world, the artist invites the viewer to rethink the meaning of the fundamental concepts of physicality and temporality. She appropriating seven basic and simple words attached to these concepts and, using the visual codes of a hangman game, replaces the vowels in them with dashes. The physical manifestation of the words is transformed in the process as are the definition of the concepts they represent in the post-Internet age.
