The series Copy Kittens shows social trends in female attitude in different times.
This series is a response to social networks, like Facebook. The more popular friends network become the more conflicting their function of intimacy through privacy. When I entered Facebook I wanted a profile photo with a social feel, without showing me as a person.
To create the human touch I used myself as actor and canvas, dressed up the room and acted to what I believe is the perfect secretary from the late fifties. More women character roles followed and details in the photos became refined; From nail polish upto wallpaper the women are placed in the habitat of their time.
The idea of Copy Kittens did not come out of the blue. In 1997 I created Identity engineering as response to the pressure to have and manitain several cv's for each carreer possibility and as hommage to 'all about me' first generation homepages.
