A Series of photographs and GIF files by Ewa Doroszenko, created in 2022 reveal the potentials and paradoxes of digital intimacy. The pictures are accompanied by an album of musical compositions created by Jacek Doroszenko. The sound compositions are partly based on recordings of daily beauty and relaxation rituals, evening conversations, meetings, and close-ups, including virtual ones – full of digital blurs, distortions, and imperfections. Building on the performativity of these activities, the artists experimented with the post-organic body to present their version of sonic corporeality. Closely recorded musical activities and those that by their repetition imitate music or bypass this category direct the Bodyfulness project towards sound art.
We are a creative couple. In our symbiotic everyday reality, art blends with life. We operate in the era of digital dependencies. Contemporary technologies increasingly affect our lives and work, and the dynamics of their development make them more and more integrated with reality. Our situation seems to be dominated by virtual images and content – digital immersion is an inseparable element of every day we spend together. There is no longer a dichotomy between the virtual and real worlds, we exist in a new, hybrid space in which boundaries extend beyond the tangible experience. Fascinated by these phenomena, in the Bodyfulness project we try to capture the coexistence of physical and virtual life, talk about the intimate experience of the body online and offline, to show a subjective audiovisual study of the way modern technology and culture modify our intimate relationships.
