WET AF “Franziska Von Guten – Pink Pink Moon”, 2017, Video 35” – Premiere – After Effect.
This video is a reflection on the bodily intimacy implicated in the seemingly, cold, impersonal act of scrolling and navigating the internet. Despite the general perception of technologically mediated sociality as something opposed to “true” and “authentic” human socialisation, navigating the web has become one of the most personal and intimate acts performed by contemporary individuals. To share one’s web history with someone else might be seen as one of the bravest acts of trust you can perform in our age, somehow comparable to the careless abandonment experienced during sexual intercourse. The aesthetics of the video are an homage to my favorite “internet princesses” and to their pioneering work in disclosing the relationship between body, sexuality and technology.
