A VIDEO CALL WITH YOURSELF
Can’t stop staring at yourself in video calls?
With increasing globalization and since the start of the Covid pandemic, video calls have become part of everyday life for many people. Professional and social interaction increasingly takes place via video calls. There, however, one sees not only the other persons but also oneself; you see how you interact, which gestures and movements you make and how you react to others.
In the interactive website "A Video Call With Yourself", the constant self-dramatization and self-monitoring of one's own presentation are broken in repetitive live transmissions by a loss of control over it. Thus, viewers are encouraged to engage with the psychological and social effects of self-view in video calls.
