Entry Description:

Alienation series is a project made of 15 coloured photographs experimenting coloured light projection and motion with analog photography, as I wanted to express the feeling of alienation by a person in the place and the surroundings where he/she lives.

After some research on the topic of alienation, one of the most intriguing studies, was Melvin Seemans model of alienation which consists of five aspects: powerlessness, meaninglessness, normlessness, social isolation and self-estrangement.

In addition to that, in our contemporary world, the more complex and demanding our environment is, the more it may cause a sense of powerlessness. A feeling of being unable to choose from a huge selection of options and being increasingly and daily overloaded with information. This is a so-called data tsunami, which is a problem that may be confronting any of us at any certain stage.
