Glitch Girl

For the 7th edition of the Kosovo Mural Festival, the theme ‘(on)offline’ prompted an exploration of the dichotomy between the tangible reality we inhabit and the virtual realms we construct online.

In my contribution, I aimed to encapsulate the interstitial space bridging the digital and physical worlds—a realm where we lead parallel lives, deliberating over which version of ourselves to reveal or withhold during interactions.

The mural features an oversized portrait of a young girl in close proximity. Behind a slatted blind, she stands, peering voyeuristically into the external world. Progressing down the artwork, a digital glitch disrupts the imagery, infusing a burst of color to redirect our focus. It prompts contemplation—what exactly are we witnessing? Is the avatar glimpsing through the blind a creation of the online persona, or does it genuinely represent the individual in the real world?

This mural prompts a poignant query: When does the digital realm begin to overshadow and consume the authenticity of the real world?
