Exit 2013


Master Exhibition

The rise of social media led to the 
trend of constantly sharing and multi-
plying everything in order to measure 
a specific online identity.

 From my personal frustration with the
 constantly growing visual and textual 
virtual waste.
 I tried to concentrate on the printed
 word and image in my research project.
 I want to move contemporary digital 
communication transfer, with its dynamic 
but transitory internet pages, towards
 a printed medium.

I developed a live-printing installation of a website that automatically posts the most popular hashtags (f.e. #selfie, #me, #bored…) on its homepage. By printing this huge amount of content that shows up on the website, the daily virtual waste of images and content on the web became visual.
