In August 2017, “I can hear you now” project became part of the group exhibition “Landing 2017: Searching for Meaning”, for the category “What defines us”.
‘Landings’ was a collection of work-in-progress exhibitions by students of the Online MA Photography course at Falmouth University.
Falmouth historically served as one of the first ports for returning ships of the Royal Navy and the exhibition continues Falmouth’s presence as a point of exchange and communication with the wider virtual and physical worlds. Locations were multiple, but the aim was to build a robust international photographic community without borders.
The organisation of the section dedicated to “I can hear you now” entirely took place online, using Instagram to engage a participatory photographic-installation, rather than a simple photographic exhibitions: the audience was asked to take a ‘selfie’ while screaming and share it on their Instagram profiles with the tags #Icanhearyounow. The aim behind this exhibition was to increase the online interest on the subject matter behind my project and to enhance a participatory approach in viewers who became, for seven days, photographers and sitters at the same time.
