Me, Myself, & IRL investigates the tension between material and immaterial, and calls into question the authenticity of an image in the era of Photoshop and the Internet. The tension between material and immaterial space has become a site of investigation in how lived experiences are being defined and cultivated. The ongoing evolution of technology and its seamless integration into daily life has challenged how we define ourselves and relate to a progressively digital world.We continuously reassess identity, skirting the line between presentation and performance—expectations met, shattered, or desired. Reality has become obscure as its representation, temporality, and authenticity take on new dimensions. The artists in this exhibition present altered realities using experimental methods of image-making, which explore the current state of uncertainty both in our interaction with technology and state of existing in a technologically-mediated world.
