Interbang is the name of a collective project taking the form of a visual research.
Provocatively posing the question "What are you communicating!?", it wants to ignite a reflection upon the thematics dominating contemporary mainstream discourse.
Sex and violence have become the spectacle's society's second skin. They represent the two poles of most contemporary narratives, entangling collective imagination within the limits of a reality that seems to frantically rotate around strong, shocking emotions, thus forcing the viewer to stare at the representation's surface. The need for a deeper look is shrugged off.
Arousing the psyche's erogenous zones, this kind of narrative causes a split between surface and depth, between representation and meaning.
The traces of this divorce within mainstream entertainment have a feedback on the virtual world of blogs and social networks: in short, on all those spaces meant for individual and collective expression in which people represent themselves. Through their looks and their style, these spaces give us an overview of the dominating cultural references of contemporary society.
This audiovisual work by Interbang was made using exclusively pictures collected from the web, accompanied by music from DJ Digi G'Alessio.
