In this project, Vladimir Potapov acts as a researcher of the media space, works with the theme of the influence of social. networks and manipulation of public consciousness. The hero of the research is Kirill Blagolepov, or rather the Facebook profile, which is a fake account created specifically for winding up votes, likes and other activities.
The works presented by the artist are based on the visual field of the page, which consists of reposts of other people's publications and photographs.
This project is both a monument to anonymity and an ode to digital avatars posing as human beings. "We have witnessed the emergence of a new entity - digital, which in a short period of its life manages to flare up as an imitation of human consciousness, influence socio-political processes, and turn into digital decay, from which nothing remains. I will perpetuate this replica, find and describe her personality, create a memory of her and make this a household name, "says the author.
Potapov uses holographic film as a basis for painting to emphasize the virtuality of what is happening. In his opinion, the holographic base is of a technical nature and its radiance refers to the light of Tabor. If the icon has a divine and sacred light, then in Potapov's works the light is technocratic, and because of the repeating patterns of the pattern, it is matrix light.
Potapov takes holographic film, this cheap, kitsch material, and illustrates the new digital world with it. His paintings glow with "digital radiation", the picturesque layer breaks through and digital reality flickers under it with a cold glow.
