While many people are fabricating dual personalities with their Instagram accounts, Pawel Nolbert is creating work that embraces the ambiguity of reality in the social platform.
In his Deconstructed series, the Polish artist takes simple shapes and arranges them so they fit effortlessly into their environment. The photos are a beautiful and minimal use of collage that create a new reality, which Pawel compares to the distorted reality often found on social media.
Nolbert explains, “We construct our reality in our own way. We do that everyday on our Instagrams, blogs and other carefully-curated outlets. Knowing that the world around us doesn’t look like this, we somehow want to believe that all those often extremely filtered and post-processed images in our IG stream are actually the real thing.”
“We never recall things exactly as they happened. We remember them in our personal way. One, true version of reality doesn’t exist.”
