CamGirls Project by Vanessa Omoregie

CamGirls Project by Vanessa Omoregie is an investigative project that explored the female image within the online space.
The project throughout its course looked at themes of questioning “beauty” standards, ideas of censorship, and representation in art. It was an interactive piece starting with the instruction “copy this pose”, allowing people across the internet to re-create women portrayed in famous paintings.

quote [The project asked questions about why the internet in regards to art isn’t taken as seriously and why important cultural phenomena like selfies are kind of mocked by the media, especially when they involves women. I wanted to look at who the “online girl” is and how her image is perceived through the lens of cyber-space].
