DE KIJKDOOS WEESPERSTRAAT 51
Posted by: sinem-yilmaz
Field: Multidisciplinary art
I’M SORRY, BECAUSE I DANCE focuses on the internet and the culture that takes shape around it. The project investigates ‘society's and individuals’ reflection on internet via ‘talent/idol/popstar’ audition videos distributed by video sharing websites such as Youtube and Dailymotion. Originally broadcasted on TV, these audition programmes -such as Popstar, X Factor, Starmania, American Idol etc.- undergo a quite different way of response by the viewers on the internet, since they can participate with their thoughts through having a debate on them or broadcasting their own selections. The project aims to achieve an objective observation point on what is going on in that phenomenal environment. But instead of success stories, it chooses the stories of so-called ‘talentless wannabes who’d do anything for their 5 minutes of fame’ because that’s where the main debates take place.
