For Intimate Matter / An Algorithmic Privacy Balz Isler asked friends and other artists to send him private pictures. He collected them in order to perform a conceptual image editing process that conceals the person’s actions and their personal and objective evidence in the photos. Isler defined an area in each of these digital images to be replaced or covered by the computer. The lack of personnel information gave rise to new, enigmatic images, which in turn have a very special intimacy and closeness. Intimate Matter / An Algorithmic Privacy questions trust, communication, temporality, the media and physical public on their habits and actions. It was published in Hermes Villena’s zine ( INTESTINE ) Nr. 2 in 2015. We are happy to show you a selection of the images below.
Balz Isler’s upcoming exhibition Hoch über dem Unmut thront die Kraft opens this Friday, November 20, at Galerie Conradi in Hamburg. Find more information below.
