PHOBOS EX MACHINA
BIENAL '19 FOTOGRAFIA DO PORTO Adaptation and Transition
Project from Ewa Ciechanowska and Artur Urbański called PHOBOS EX MACHINA will be exhibited at Bienal Fotografia do Porto in May 2019 Adaptation and Transition.
PHOBOS EX MACHINA project examines how selction of images and information affect our choices. Internet and social media gave the promise of ’many to many’ medium - truly democratic communication tool which is free of government or corporate influence. Instead of this idealistic vision nowadays we face various consequences of social media influenced activity at global scale. Influence algorithms amplify our views distorting our own perception of reality and affect our choices - which we believe to be taken independently.
