Eva & Franco Mattes WORKS EXHIBITIONS ABOUT

 

 

The Others (2011)

A 137 min. video slideshow of 10,000 photos appropriated from people’s personal computers, without their knowledge. The act of obtaining the images did not involve hacking, but took advantage of a software error.

The projection is always “wrong”, wrongly placed, wrongly rotated and wrongly keystoned, “as if my mom had set it up”.

The photos were most likely not meant to be public, but we will never know for sure. The project intentionally ventures into legal and ethical grey zones and tests boundaries of the public and private, as well as the distribution and perception of personal images.
