This work is committed to various questions of identity: How do we define and present ourselves, how do we communicate these identities in digital spheres? Fake lifestyle in social media is becoming the norm, the pressure of self-optimisation is turning into an overkill and the simulated perfection is transforming individuals into performative identities. Once everyone can display, shape and change their own faces, everyone becomes a star in their own reality show. Have those identities now reached a new peak or are there other goals they will reach with their digital performance? Starting from these questions, we think about our own digital narrative. The excess of perfect postings evokes a desire for trash, naivety and ugliness.
