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 and privacy. When I entered Facebook I wanted a profile photo with a social feel, without sharing my private life with the world.
To maintain a social 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 rymes with an earlier project Identity engineering 1997. That was a response to the pressure to have and manitain seperated cv's for each and every professional skill and was also a hommage to 'all about me' first generation web homepages (1993-1995).
