Summary
Delanty states, "We live in a physical reality which has merged seamlessly with a digital reality." He notes technology is praised as a solution to our problems, but is always spoken as if it is in some near future. The artist, through study, concludes that in order to circumvent technologies, such as computer vision, one must become more of a spectacle by donning a cyberpunk fashion and a style that disrupts its ability to identify you. This project creates digital and physical camouflages to obfuscate and disrupt our shared data by utilizing false locations interacted with real ones. Using social media as its platform for research and discovery, active accounts and geolocation tags are used to create 'realness'. Our realness is actively mediated through social medias' algorithms, where the spectacle rises to the top-receiving the most engagement. DeLanty arrives at an overarching question: "What extent do we need to go through in order to protect ourselves in today's world while still participating in online society?" By creating an interactive installation, the artist creates a space with specific aesthetics, using a researched color pallete, typography, image displays and video monitors/displays
