Atlas of Emotions
Jari Silomäki’s Atlas of Emotions
is the result of an elaborate research process. For this, the artist – who is primarily known as a photographer – studied the stories of people who actively participate in digital discussion forums. Who are the people who hide behind alter ego names on digital platforms? Silomäki researched their backgrounds – also to find out how sometimes bizarre opinions are formed in the first place. He compiled his research in a manuscript and had actors reenact this fusion of imagination and reality in his studio, interpreting the scenes and domestic environments.
