This is a work from my “Media Disease” series. In the era of social networks, other people’s ears, eyes, and statements are present in almost every moment of our existence. Imagine that your whole body is covered with ears that are constantly listening, eyes that are watching all the time, and mouths that endlessly speak out.
Demian Feriy aka Meltdownlove is a Ukrainian digital artist, animator, musician, composer, and producer. The artist’s work is informed by many sources including Impressionism, Surrealism, Cubism, Abstractionism and jewelry art. The basis of almost all of his work are contradictions of varying degrees and forms, internal conflicts, uncertainty, and ambivalence. Meltdownlove’s art reflects on the topics of technical progress, digitalization, mental health, the influence of media on the psyche, relationships with nature, and experiencing the virtual.
