Why live analog lives if we do it all digitally?

Every one of us has at least one digital identity – if not several! Digital technology has long since come to dominate not only every technological aspect of our everyday lives, but increasingly our social fabric as well.

Digital has taken over. We’re constantly on our mobile phones, sharing personal information on social media, disclosing personal data to anonymous companies and all sorts of online entities, even regulating our home lighting and heating via smart devices. What seemed unimaginable just a few years ago is now part and parcel of our ordinary everyday lives, lives that are processed, assessed and consumed on platforms like Instagram and Facebook.

So how does all this impact our personal relationships and everyday lives? Photographic artist Julia Steinigeweg explores the effects of the digital world on our day-to-day lives and relationships, and finds that the more you deal with absurd phenomena, the more normal they eventually appear.
