In times of social media and virtual relationships, the moment is fleeting. It does not matter so much to seizing it but capture it and put it in evidence in the cloud of the virtual world. We used to be reduced to atoms of a molecule but today we are reduced to the pixel of an image. Living for likes in a relationship that happens wirelessly and through the touch of screens.
We have the false sense of being capturing the world we live in, reducing it to algorithms and compressing it into clouds of information that serve as oxygen when, in fact, every time we photograph something we move further away from the object; in the same way, we move away from the conception of humans, the more virtual we become between each other. As an image that does not have to be finished to be interpreted (and then discarded for a new one), have we reached a point where human contacts are condensed that they are reduced to formulas?
“Secret Garden” explores the relationship of the digital image with our everyday life. The fetish and the need to capture everything and nothing at the same time, storing memories in clouds that may never be accessed by the excess information it contains. The eternal search for the best image, in anxiety that does not allow us to live the moment.
