Quest for Truth in a Digital Age

BY LISA WENGER
@ VOL 10 ON JUN 06, 2014

Lisa Wenger's work is a quest for truth in a digital age. As viewers, we are constantly bombarded with images of perfection, which are often so beautiful that they have become grotesque. She chooses to emphasize and praise imperfections in her portraits rather than allow media to persuade us that only perfection is beautiful.

Life Needs Internet

BY JEROEN VAN LOON
@ VOL 10 ON APR 22, 2014

Life Needs Internet aims to document how we currently feel about the Internet. This differs per culture, generation, country or even city; there is no global digital culture. While in 2013 39% of the world’s population had access to the Internet, writing a letter is still a technology that is roughly available to anyone. It’s a simple, low-cost and low-tech way to document thoughts and feelings. The global influence of the Internet is preserved through a traditional medium; each handwritten letter is a unique cultural artefact. Together these letters create an archaeological insight into digital culture.
