Video Loop (Gifs/ Memes), 4:3, Colour and B&W, mute, 2018

circle deals with virtual, non-verbal communication forms between friends: For a week in each case, I communicated with five friends via Memes/Gifs only using a messaging device, and translated the output into a video loop. circle doesn’t refer to a beginning or an end, it focuses on moving images, which are based on repetition, reference and exaggeration of the everyday. The private communication becomes a remix of my own and the other’s identities as well as a mashup of collective visual memory.
