Eva and Franco Mattes use the web and media to create their art work. Their work has been seen as very controversial and sometimes almost illegal. Their pieces have a lot to do with power structures and exploring the technological world.
A recent exhibition of theirs had multimedia performances, which challenged social media’s ideas of privacy. They displayed 10,000 stolen photographs. They found a faulty file that allowed them to access random people’s personal photos. They had a slideshow of shirtless guys and girls doing the duck face. That is just an example of the many buzz stirring art works they did.
Very often they have been criticized and their artist skills have been questioned because they take part of their art works from others. In my opinion that is fine because their isn’t anything truly original. Everything is inspired by other’s work and changed around from different people.
