Hannah Neckel


Title: 666


Hannah Neckel, also known online as voidgirl79, is a new media artist from Vienna, based on the internet. She is currently a student at the University of Applied Arts in Vienna at the Transmedia Art department. Always being fascinated by the internet and growing up online, her work is presented both online and in the form of immersive installations. Neckel is interested in how technology shapes emotion and influences the circulation of feelings. She explores the interpersonal relationship between us, our phones and thus our online lives, blending real and virtual. Claiming that the perception of reality happens through emotions, Neckel argues that there is no distinction anymore between online and offline as the emotions felt are the same in both spaces, and merges these two further through the aesthetic experience created by the installations. Using vaporwave aesthetics is important for the artist, in order to load the installation with emotional potential, from nostalgia to happiness to melancholia, to explore how the internet shapes emotions.
