Abglanz is a German word used to describe a ‘pale reflection’ or a ‘distant echo’. The project investigates the value and accessibility of personal visual information online. Fragments of images taken from social media platforms are reconstructed into a new scenario. Thereby, the original meaning of the images is put into another context. The work becomes an allegory of display, questioning how we are reflected and recognized behind the screen. It is presented in a panoramic view in order to guide the attention through the collection at large.
