Vlog ft. Vito Acconci

2023, single-channel video with sound

This video project draws inspiration from Vito Acconci's 1974 work "Turn On," adopting a casual vlog style that deliberately contrasts with the tense and dramatic energy of Acconci's confrontational approach. Through this deliberate juxtaposition, my character navigates a spectrum of emotions, prompting viewers to question the authenticity of the unfolding narrative. The video serves as an exploration of parasocial relationships forged through deeply personal online interactions, shedding light on the blurred boundaries between reality and digital personas. By layering audio and video elements, I examine the collapse of time and space within digital realities, inviting audiences to contemplate the complex interplay between authenticity and performance in the evolving landscape of online connections.
