Poster realized for 1/18 poster exhibition, at Stepenište Gallery, Belgrade Theme: Relation (23 March - 5 April 2013) "Facebook has affected the social life and activity of people in various ways. Facebook allows users to continuously stay in touch with friends, relatives and other acquaintances wherever they are in the world, as long as there is access to the Internet. It can also unite people with common interests and/or beliefs through groups and other pages, and has been known to reunite lost family members and friends because of the widespread reach of its network. Some argue that Facebook is beneficial to one’s social life because they can continuously stay in contact with their friends and relatives, while others say that it can cause increased antisocial tendencies because people are not directly communicating with each other. Some studies have named Facebook as a source of problems in relationships. Several news stories have suggested that using Facebook can lead to higher instances of divorce and infidelity, but the claims have been questioned by other commentators." This poster doesn’t want to take a stand in favor or against Facebook. It rather intends to be reflective about this situation instead. The technique is inspired by Aude Oliva and Antonio Torralba’s studies on Hybrid Images, at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Mit). A hybrid image is a picture that combines the low-spatial frequencies of one picture with the high spatial frequencies of another picture, producing an image with an interpretation that changes with viewing distance.
