Antoine Martin - Virtual Mass
For more than two years, Antoine Martin explored the contents of the main online camera directory (insecam.com). He focused in particular on virtual masses, a phenomenon that saw exponential growth during the pandemic. In an era when meeting up online and the digitization of information are rising trends, Martin’s “Virtual Mass” series showcases the ubiquity of remote surveillance and reveals the role played by new technologies in the liturgical space. The screenshots collected in a publication that evokes the aesthetics of Mass books ultimately prompt the viewer to consider whether the digitization of the divine presence is conceivable.
