My work engages with the question of the gaze in relation to gender, sexuality and desire in light of digital social networks. Through different online platforms, such as Tinder and Airbnb, I find the 'ideal' man and 'ideal' home to construct my 'ideal' images, using photography to examine established ways of staging eroticism and intimacy. In my work, the female figure is no longer the incarnation of someone else's dream or desire, but the creator of her own stories. Instead of simply reversing the gender roles of men and women, my work tries to play with the power relationship inherent in the gaze, and to question the distinction between representations and individual subjects in an era of rapid social change.
