Nicoleta Mureş (b.1996) is a graduate of the University of Art and Design in Cluj-Napoca. By using photography and 3D human bodies, she creates digital collages representing individuals trapped in virtual realms.
Her artworks predict a dystopian future, where people have to deal with unreal emotions, isolation, desembodiment while being influenced by the way in which technology fuels humanity’s desire to consume.
[On-going] Filter Gallery
spam-index proudly presents the first on-going project on the platform, Nicoleta Mureș’s Instagram filter gallery. We invited Nicoleta to gather her filters on this dedicated page, so we can easily follow how she explores filters as a medium in her artistic practice.
I create Instagram filters because they are so easy to use and so accessible. I like how my 3D models or digital collages merge with our reality, it’s like an extension of my practice.
Filters were initially used to produce body deformations or make-up effects because of their powerful influence on social media. But they can also reveal the rotten structures of our online lives.
