Interview at the Geneva International Filmfestival's Swiss Interactive Sessions 2020
This project questions the intimacy with our digital devices – in particular – my relationship with my laptop. In a time where we cover up our cameras on our devices to not feel observed, I let my device take pictures of me on purpose. Everytime I activate my computer, it takes a picture with its built-in camera. I wonder what my computer "sees" all day while I work on it, using it as a "tool“. We spend lots of hours on our devices. I experience this kind of intimacy only with people I spend a lot of time with.
Here I visualize what my computer sees – treating the built-in camera like its „eyes“. Like in „human“ relationships, I let my computer take pictures of me. Taking this pictures, I let the viewer take part of this intimate relationship I have with my computer. It sees me with and without makeup, dressed up and in my pj’s, happy, bored, angry, inspired, concentrated.
