“Intimidad Romero by Intimidad Romero” is a webart piece that takes place in Facebook. Taking pictures and sharing them has become one of the most demanded activities, where the e-image constructs the self. These social practices have led to a displacement of Warhol’s pop star as the essential figure of mass media societies into micro-pop stars of everyday life, where life is lived through images and digital devices. In this sense, a new version of pop culture arises where the only experiences that are worth having are those that are “shown, shared and liked”. This project critically examines personal and interpersonal dynamics in contemporary digital pop culture, by placing a band of pixels in all her Facebook pictures, hiding all identitarian characteristics.

ARTISTS


Intimidad Romero (ES)

Intimidad Romero is a well-known faceless celebrity, using her intimate pixelated digital photos as the main source for social interaction since 2010. Delivering cyberperformances, Intimidad understands the media not as a mere container but as an essential part in self- designed identities within contemporary societies. Ηer work intends to use the main socio-technical characters offered by the social media such as pseudo-anonymity, public exposure and the use of photography as the major way of interaction and representation in social media, dissolving the boundaries between the work and the author. She has been nominated for the Social Media Art Award (Phanoemenale Festival Germany 2015). Her work has been exhibited at Pixxelpoint Media Art Festival in Slovenia, at NRW Forum in Düsseldorf and at the Museum of Modern Art in Bogotá.
