Below you will find my final images for the ‘Rest’ topic. I have created animated gifs that attempt to show how, even when we are resting, we’re constantly connected to another unique digital identity. This is mostly thanks to the development of social media and smartphones, as facebook can be accessed constantly throughout the day, and almost anywhere you go. The ‘glitching’ effect that Ive used to mask out the subject in each photo is a good representation of a digital connection, and I believe it works well with the unedited background as it provides an interesting contrast within the images.
I talked through the project with the subject and asked him various questions about his personality. He described himself as free spirited and so I then captured this through the photographs.
