Dear Diary: Esmeralda Kosmatopoulos

This week’s Dear Diary has a new twist!  We asked the busy, tech savvy, French/Greek multimedia artist Esmeralda Kosmatopoulos to document her day and she gave us a bunch of instagrams from October 16th 2013. We are brought right inside Esmeralda’s own smartphone world with the post captions and extra meta data.  It makes sense as Esmeralda works in a variety of media (Neon, Text, Interwebs) and often uses social media in unexpected ways, see Siri&Me.  Esmeralda’s artwork is a reflexion on the construction of identity, personal memories and collective history in the digital age – how they are created, perceived and restricted.  I like to think of Kosmatopoulos as a millennial Jenny Holzer.
