Connection Lost the new work By Frizza is opening at Gaffa Gallery 6pm on February 24th. The Show is a raw documentation of post 1960's sexual exploration and how the internet has spawned a global semi reality of sexual experience in a post 1980's safe sex environment. Its impact is a stark contrast between the taboo shift in moral and social acceptability of Cyberscape and daily reality.
The Portraits, a collection of over 5000 different individuals from all around the world were met via personals sites and photographed using their webcams. Men were given no more than 5 minutes and women no more than 15 minutes of interaction. All images were captured during webcam sessions with the individuals prior to their knowledge, providing a real insight into the true behaviors of those recorded. The scope of the work spans all demographics from 18 to over 80, Male, Female,Trans Gender, Straight, Gay, Rich Poor, and hundreds of cultural and ethnic diversities. It is though this the true scale of the phenomena is revealed.
OPENING : 6PM February 24th @ GAFFA Gallery 281 Clarence Street Sydney.
