How does one match with another soul at the time of Internet dating apps? The project is an attempt at understanding the personal preferences and aesthetics underlying what makes photographic seduction possible.
Matchomaton started in 2017 as a project seeking the esthetical significance of the photos we match. In that our urge to overcome singlehood, we swipe photographs but rarely consider what they represent. While these apps tend to focus on the one-to-one relationship, looking at the self-photographs we post and concatenating them in unique collages, the result gives us a glimpse of what we could look like all facets-included.
Rebuilding unrecognizable portraits of random women matched using the pictures they posted on popular meeting apps, with the explicit approval of the subjects, offers a glimpse of what that individual could be, including a self-reconstruction.
