Eduardo Navas. Instagram Drawings, 2018 – Present.
“Ongoing series of daily drawings based on photographs of media and news events. The drawings are photographed with a smartphone to upload to Instagram.
Instragram Drawings engages with this issue by functioning as a reflective exercise on the whole process of online sharing. The drawings are specifically made for Instagram. I think of them as “filters” not so different from the ones Instagram offers to edit uploads. The act of drawing is my “human” filter. The drawings are hand copies of photographic images of news and media events that I encounter throughout the day.”
