self.detach is a dynamic object, which adopts a critical position towards the celebration of the ego on the internet by dissolving self-portraying pictures into coloured particles.
The flickr.com live photo stream is constantly downloaded, all currently posted images moving through the beholders’ field of vision on a small display.
Those images tagged with terms like „me“, „myself“, „i“, „moi“, ich“ and so on are displayed larger than the others and dissolved into a stream of red, green and blue particles, which is continued outside of the screen as physically tangible grains of coloured sand. The identities staged on flickr.com are, like a finished mandala, dissolved. The decomposition into the basic colors symbolizes the irrelevance of the digital self.
