This Instagram workshop by Floriane Misslin will explore selected data and uncover the motives lying behind aesthetic protocols and other methods of representations.
Instagram profiles are idealized selves, precisely initiated and shaped by its author. Beyond the vast data of enhanced and manipulated images stands the visualization of the most intimate desires of one, its community, and society at large. The intimate interaction between the self and its image reflects in a mechanism of collective identification, hence the feed blends into a uniform visual language. Image distillation clears out the homogeneity and extracts the common essence from the flows of Instagram particles. Within a couple of hours selected data will be filtered and dissected to uncover the motives lying behind aesthetic protocols and other methods of representations.
Following an education in fashion design, Floriane Misslin attended the Design Academy Eindhoven to develop her own practice. She explores identity matters through the social theory lens by binding empirical research and visual strategies. Starting a master of Visual Sociology in Goldsmiths University of London in Fall 2017, she expands her studies on the body's portrayal in media and distillation of the language of images.
