POSTED 162 GRAMS is based on a conceptual book created by the artist out of images he posted on INSTAGRAM from August 16, 2014 to September 2, 2015. Each image was assigned a meta-data to differentiate 81 portraits from 81 environments. The second meta-data entry assigned was the number of likes each posted image received on the social media platform. The artist organized the order of the resulting compositions randomly by flipping a coin. This database-coin flip process created the diptychs as they appear in the book and in the show.
Doring’s labor-intensive process reveals his deep love and commitment to analogue photography. Each image, exquisitely composed and lit, is presented as a silver-gelatin print. The young women depicted in POSTED, 162 GRAMS appear randomly juxtaposed with environments, creating 81 evocative stories.
A filmmaker and photographer who created iconic music videos in the late 90’s, won an MTV Music award and shot an Oscar-nominated documentary, Doring has kept his passion for photography uncompromised. His work in this show proves his deep commitment to art and its relationship to the contemporary social landscape.
