I am still alive
In the City: from Black and White to Color emphasized how people live in urban areas, showing the contrast between the harshness and commotion of the city and human feelings. Too concerned with ourselves, following consumerist messages and superficial needs, to realize that we are surrounded by other people with emotions. We tend to protect our feelings and vulnerabilities, putting on an “urban mask”.
The project combines the visual and sound.The visual works immortalize people in groups, in the city, during the course of normal and, at first glance, insignificant daily actions. Jupiterfab reinterprets the scenes without filters, focusing on expressions and feelings of a specific moment, showing a story behind each face. The painter shows reality as it is, capturing a specific moment, and giving the audience the opportunity and time to explore it through the faces and the expressions of each character.
The sound work is an amplification of the sound recordings made in cities. Different sounds, particular to a city, are compressed and arranged with various pauses and volumes, and speakers are positioned at different points within the exhibition space, making the audience feel enveloped and pressurized by the city’s sounds.
