Artist Statement
My identity is made between online and offline. I was so different there. I was trolling my friend’s blog and pretending tobe female in chat rooms. I had been struggling with that double myself, could be called double life. So I’m researching conversion internet scape into offline. This society is regarded as separate, so their behavior is different. But both are real. That conversion shows contemporary society.

Project : Future Ghost
Katsuki will record his face with a scanner daily, and will put it on objects in Salzburg. Our society is full of digital images. Most photos aren’t used and left on your smartphone, even selected photos are consumed quickly on the SNS. Katsuki wants to keep himself for the future as daily graves.

Time: 6th of September until 27th of September

Katsuki Nogami will work at the Alte Saline in Hallein, before and during the festival Schmiede21:WAR.
