One of the most surprising portfolios received this week with this text.
My name is Susi Belianska, and I am a photographer and artist. My project titled “Das Unheimliche” explores the intersection between human and artificial, inviting reflections on complex emotional dynamics and dilemmas that arise when we confront the possibility of replacing a human creation with a living being.
The photographs portray girls representing the idea of artificial figures hiding behind a human appearance. Each portrait captures the ambivalence of the experience in the presence of these hybrid figures, who seem alive but lack genuine vitality. The project aims to stimulate contemplation about the meaning and implications of such replacement, shedding light on the relationship between humanity and artifice.
