about 2faced1.com

2FACED1.com shows one persons two different faces in photos;

Persona 1:
WHAT YOU WANT TO BE
CONSIDERED AS

Persona 2:
WHAT YOU FEAR TO BE
CONSIDERED AS

This leads to a discussion about stereotypes and inner fears of getting misunderstood by the surroundings. Thoughts that every thinking modern day person does reflect upon. We're asking every day people from an innercity context where old categories as ethnicity, nationality, gender, sexuality and class are reassessed, why they choose to look like they do. We’re diggin' deep, peeling off garments, codes and attributes. We’re searching for transnational identities - is the conclusion that we choose whoever we want to be today?!

 

A 2FACED1 STATE OF MIND

A 2FACED1 is highly aware of existing stereotypes related to your own ethnicity, color, nationality, gender, sexual orientation and class. You’re trying to avoid them but sometimes also play with them to make people think twice about who you are. Two faced doesn’t mean anything negative here, it explains the double folded view you have on identity if you’re not the existing norm. Self awareness is a gift, because it also helps you to understand other peoples situations better. To be a 2FACED1 is to have the feet in different worlds, be able to move between them but feel rather at home in that space in between. You've stepped out of your comfort zone and has become one of the new identities where ol' categories are mashed up and rootlessness and non-given identity just means major possibilities.

The skin we live in / Instagram three years after everyone else / The creating of a fucked up reality

I've only had Instagram for a week or so but I'm alreday seriously traumatized. Here we're all grouching over how fucked up the world has become n power structures n yadayada hither and tither. But then it's lunch/coffee/whatever break and time to take some fab little Instagram photos of the fab little life with its fab little lunch/coffe/whatever. And then we wonder what the fuck is wrong with the world for a while again....  Well, maybe Me And You And Everyone We Know in this headquarter of reproducing a fucked up romanticized Instagram reality are the fucking problem! Ok, I admit that I thought it was MEGA that everyone and everything looked like Hey-Im a Supermodel-And-This-Is-My-Super-Fabulous-Life the first day too But then it was just disgusting. You and your healthy sandwich / beautiful nature / nice smile in the sun creeps the shit outta me. Seriously, what are you/me/they/we doing? What kind of lives are we living? What (world)picture(s) are we producing (of ourselves)?  Yesterday's Instagram feed felt like a mix of The Hills ft. Entourage ft. ELLE. And this is supposed to be the real life, and the one of people I know as well! Wanted to kill my whole (disgusting western-world) being and take all of Instagram's photogenic postcolonial capitalist asses with me down to the grave.

Shorty!
Jag vill ha en sån där kavaj som du har på sista bilden. OBS! Måste ha en sån. Annars går en t-shirt med samma tryck också bra. Så jävla snyggt! Kan jag beställa en?
