The images are meditations on the unsatisfying feeling of eternal interminability.

Project: My love for you was never real
Text: Frauke Schnoor
Helwig analyzes the digital theater of fabricating identity on Instagram and how it mirrors our realities and makes our desires visible. Each image is a tableau, carefully considered in relation to one of the themes or emotions she encounters daily on the platform.
The images are meditations on the unsatisfying feeling of eternal interminability, the uncertainties of digital friendship, the instability, hypersexualization, and the unfiltered hate of cybermobbing.
The work speaks of a longing for real connections; it is a confession of a false, superficial, vain love.
