Marcus Mårtenson

“Marcus Mårtenson (b.1972) works provide a mirror into a parallel reality, a simultaneous existence that we are all interplaying with. A mirror into another version of ourselves, that version that we put out there into the ‘real’ world of the internet, our ‘extreme selves’. Can you imagine life without our social media interaction? What would you do, if you couldn’t respond with an instant emoji, that fully encapsulates your emotion of that particular second? Mårtenson leads you into considering the answers and considering of the ‘self’ within that.”
