PHOBOS EX MACHINA
BIENAL '19 FOTOGRAFIA DO PORTO Adaptation and Transition
PHOBOS EX MACHINA from Ewa Ciechanowska and Artur Urbański is being exhibited at Bienal Fotografia do Porto in May 2019 Adaptation and Transition in Portuguese Centre of Photography.
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.
