Julien Mauve’s ‘Lonely Window’ series shows the other face of the digital era—the face of the individual in front of the screen. The transfixed eyes, and slack jaw illuminated by the screen, create an expression that most of us are familiar with. The faces seem riveted; one gets the sense that the subject will continue to sit long after this moment captured by the picture.
Digitization has created a fast, vibrant, prolific way of communicating. “Through its digital twilight glow, the screen becomes a window, opening to a new world while simultaneously introducing a new kind of loneliness” (Julien Mauve). The zombie-like features, blank walls and dark rooms of the subjects, portray the Internet as an invasive parasitic entity, stealing away the energy and personality of its viewers.
