S kontroverznými umeleckými projektmi sa v poslednom čase akoby roztrhlo vrece.
Zaradiť medzi ne môžeme aj sériu fotografií, ktorú sa rozhodla vytvoriť mladá, 24-ročná umelkyňa menom Marie Hyld. Nemá však politický podtón, ako by ste si možno mysleli. Napriek tomu delí ľudí na dva tábory. Časť považuje fotografie za skvelé umelecké dielo, kým druhá časť to považuje za niečo nevhodné. Čím je Marie Hyld iná ako ostatní fotografi?
Všetci vieme, že fotky a príspevky na internete neraz odrážajú len veľmi málo z reality a fotografku Marie to už začínalo unavovať. Rozhodla sa preto vytvoriť nový projekt, ktorý pomenovala Lifeconstruction. V rámci projektu vytvára intímne zábery s ľuďmi, ktorých po prvýkrát stretla len pred niekoľkými minútami. Zábery však vyzerajú, akoby na nich bol zachytený šťastný párik, pravdou však je, že objekty sa vôbec nepoznajú.
Mariin projekt začal čoskoro žať úspechy a ak ste sa ho chceli zúčastniť, stačilo na jej Tinder účte potiahnuť prstom vpravo. Fotografka hovorí, že vďaka Tindru si našla dokonca aj priateľa, s ktorým je už štyri roky. Napriek tomu, že sama sociálne siete využíva, pre Broadly Denmark sa vyjadrila nasledovne: „Je to smiešny svet. Trávime čoraz menej času tvárou v tvár. V komunikácii sme málokedy skutočne prítomní. Je to čoraz horšie a myslím si, že za to môžu práve sociálne siete. Ironické ale je, že bez nich by nemohol existovať ani môj projekt.“
A ako prebiehalo fotenie s neznámymi ľuďmi? Marie tvrdí, že ju niekoľkokrát prekvapilo, ako ľahko účastníci jej projektu prekročili hranice. Fotografka však hovorí, že na niečo také bola pripravená a dodáva, že jej to pomohlo o niečo lepšie spoznať samú seba. Čo si o jej projekte myslí jej priateľ? Umelkyňa hovorí, že ju vo všetkom absolútne podporoval a dal jej voľnú ruku, aby fotila tak, ako jej najviac vyhovuje.
Na záver Marie Hyld dodáva: „Myslím si, že by sme všetci mali nabrať odvahu a komunikovať s inými ľuďmi. Nemali by sme sa báť spoznávať iných do hĺbky a vytvárať si s nimi blízke, intímne vzťahy. Je nesmierne dôležité, aby sme hľadali a napĺňali sa skutočnými zážitkami a hodnotami, niečím, čo je reálne.“
A little sneak peak behind the scenes of my meeting with Katharina 🐕🌞she came all the way from Australia and worked as an au pair in this big, charming house in northern Sjælland. Apparently she didn't mind opening up the doors to this wierdo with a camera, struggeling to find the right house. Me. I actually was having a off day. I was tired and my skin looked like bubblewrap paper. I was sitting all critical, looking at myself in the rearwiev mirror, trying to formulate a text with a cancellation, but was hit by a sudden stubbornness – hell fucking no. This insecurity and vulnerability of mine is exactly why I shouldn't cancel. I now felt like proving to myself that I was in control of my life – not the selfdestructive thoughts of mine. And so I muted my thoughts and went to meet Katharina – and ofcourse. She was wonderful. I thanked myself meanwhile shoot for not cancelling and for allowing myself to be in whatever mood i was in. Just as i closed the door to the big house, I realized that this was just what I had needed. The vibrations of my energy level had completely turned around – just by having a fleeting, sincere, intimate connection with another human being🔥 this is officially the last pictures and story I have to tell from my Lifeconstruction series – I'm so grateful for all the kindness and curiousity about this project. And don't worry – I'm already going full force on a new one – and there will be new strangers to come and new stories to tell! Just in another form. Stay tuned, loved ones! #pretend #intimacy #love #vibes #tinder #piano #playing #leg #cuddles #photographer #photoshoot #shooting #photooftheday #tinder #couple #happy #laughing #excited #strangers #unknown #vice #broadlydk
A little sneak peak of my meeting with Asger 🎈 🌅 This particular meeting is very special to me. It contains ignition of the lifeconstruction-rocket! Asger was the very first stumble-fumble-laugh meeting I had among 12 others. He lived on the top floor in this charming, light-filled apartment. I remember opening the first door which led me to a dark hall decorated with colored lamps – such a quirky, charming place! He opened the door in the end of the hall and smiled at me. Even though I had this idea of me being the one in charge, he was actually the one calming me. I've got this scene in my head of him and me standing in front of each other shortly after greeting. We're counting down to a stripdown which we immediately agreed on doing to break the ice with manners – laughing while textile-tossing like crazy. We spent 1-2 minutes giggling like two schoolgirls and then quickly fell into the whole relationship scene. "God damn it, didn't I tell you to turn around the toilet paper roll?! you're making me so fucking old and bitter" "shut up! You're tiering me with all your negative shit.. I can't stand you!" we yelled across the apartment while I peed with an open door and he brought me some water. It was hilarious. I felt so alive. Thank you for being my first. #pretend #intimacy #love #vibes #tinder #piano #playing #leg #project #cuddles #photographer #photoshoot #shooting #photooftheday #tinder #couple #happy #laughing #excited #strangers #unknown #vice #broadlydk #bed #kissing
A little sneak peak behind the scenes of my meeting with Thor 🍫🌷I'm still laughing about this meeting. Especially because he eagerly gave me a whole plant in a pot. I just got a plant. I waved goodbye with one hand and held the plant in the other. I brought it home. I got his plant now. He was from germany and had this piercing accent that I loved so very much. Besides from the plant I got some chocolate and the pleasure of some Khurangbin playing in the background – 5/5 Stars for the corny setup I couldn't help but laugh nervously about. If he hadn't radiated the kindness he then did, I would definitely have had an eye on the closest door! But instead I used the cornyness to fall into the roleplaying 👩🏻🎤👨🏼🎤I have this picture in my head of me, in many years from now, looking at my window sill and being met by this wildly grown plant having this amazing story to tell 🌿🌱 #pretend #intimacy #love #vibes #tinder #piano #playing #leg #cuddles #photographer #photoshoot #shooting #photooftheday #tinder #couple #happy #laughing #excited #strangers #unknown #vice #broadlydk #bed #kissing
A little sneak peak behind the scenes of my meeting with Jonathan 🎹🎼✨ this was a pure hurricane-meeting (15 minutes in total!) I remember his shadow rushing to the door when I knocked. He mumbled something about a doctor appointment and being in a hurry while panickly and hospitably trying to squeeze in boiling water and making me some tea. I laughed silently – thinking about all the wonderfully different colors of worlds there was and that I had yet to explore. I really, really enjoyed the diversity of every meeting – welcoming whatever might occur. In this case it was creating deep intimacy quickly. But I mean – how much time do you really need to create something beautiful with that piano-corner of his? It was already stunning – it was just all up to this stress-circus of us to complete it. Firstly we sat down in the chair in front of the piano, my heart against his back. Slowing down. Using some of the precious minutes to find each other in this blurry stress-hurricane of ours. From there on, I moved to the top of the piano and it just normally took It's form. After 8 briefly minutes, a sincere intimate situation found place – we found It's core. That was it. I grabbed my stuff, hugged him and got a glimpse of the steaming tea on the kitchen counter before he closed the door. I laughed all the way from his little cabin to my car. What was his name again?#pretend #intimacy #love #vibes #tinder #piano #playing #leg #cuddles #photographer #photoshoot #shooting #photooftheday #tinder #couple #happy #laughing #excited #strangers #unknown #vice #broadlydk
A little sneak peak behind the scenes of my meeting with Kalle 🔥🇸🇪i remember sitting in my car, not being in the mood for another highalert-meeting. I therefore decided that this one was going to be a "quickie" which explains the timestamp being 10 min ⚡️. I hugged Kalle, got a banana (Kalle the thoughtful man) and searched the room for a scene to act it out in – and ofcourse, there it was – the shower. How could we do anything else than the shower? Look at that lightning! We looked at each other while smiling and counting down:" 3, 2, 1" – and then we stripped down, laughing. To my big surprise the bathing scene felt pretty natural (for a moment) – I blame the combination of the calmness of a damp shower and the bearhug of his 💦the bathing scene completely kicked me out of my no-highalert-mood and brought us to the window sill to end the meeting in a way that felt worthy. I asked Kalle to feel my pulse, sitting there – it was still running wild from the bathingscene #pretend #intimacy #love #vibes #tinder #pulse #bathing #shower #couple #happy #laughing #excited #strangers #unknown #vice #broadlydk
A little sneak peak behind the scenes of my meeting with Dooley 💥 he was such a kind soul (instantly offered me an IPA) with such a random place – bike saddles on the walls, 3D printed things all over, VR glasses we tried off with me on his shoulders wearing the glasses and him controlling the controller, an axe in a log.. you name it. This place was so special – it kind of felt like home in a wierd way. We finished off by drinking IPA in the bed, talking about people and how quirky we all are #pretend #intimacy #love #vibes #tinder #washing #couple #happy #laughing #excited #strangers #unknown #vice #broadlydk #unknown #laughing
A little sneak peak behind the scenes of my meeting with Ida and Issam🔥look at that awkward hand and smile of mine in the upper left picture 😅That meeting was quite nervewrecking for me, because it all of a sudden was me and this "team" of Ida and Issam that had comfort in each other. It was really, really fun though! They both studied photography, so a fun creative space quickly became the core of the shoot (not my uncomfortableness) 😄 #pretend #intimacy #love #vibes #tinder #shooting #photography #red #chess #threesome #couple #happy #laughing #excited #strangers #unknown #vice #broadlydk
(Glovepicture is only seconds apart) A little sneak peak behind the scenes of my meeting with Mr. SM 🔥despite the intense oil-pouring scene ahead of the shoot, the glove wasn't up for teamplay. And oh, controlling a joystick with oily latexgloves doesn't do anything good either! 😂 i remember we sat on the couch talking about his experiences in the BDSM world when all of a sudden he looks up at me and says:" you probably think that I'm a wierdo now" which was the absolute turning point in telling him that I absolutely didn't think any less of him for following his lusts – only more! God damn it, I mean, life is short, right? Be who you are. Wholehearted. (I mean, with It's limits ofcourse. No killing or anything) #couple #fake #intimate #overwhelmed #love #tinder #fight #awkward #boundaries #holdon #stranger #photoshoot #project #photooftheday #vice #broadly
(13 minutes apart) A little sneak peak behind the scenes of my meeting with Andreas 🔥We both were really up for the idea of a fight, but we quickly realised we didn't have it in our hearts! 😄#couple #fake #intimate #overwhelmed #love #tinder #fight #awkward #boundaries #holdon #stranger #photoshoot #project #photooftheday
⭐️Only 4 minutes apart – It's all about that brief moment! A little sneak peak behind the scenes of my shoot with Christina! 🔥 she had this wonderfully plant-invated apartment which had a awesome calmness to it. We were both a bit shaking and tumbling, but we kind of got lost in pretending and the process was very heartfelt. From this day on and 13 days ahead I'll share an honest insight of my meetings with the participants of the project! – compared to the chosen one ⭐️ #fake #lies #socialmedia #intimacy #kiss #vice
