Jacqueline Hassink: Unwired


Unwired combines two concurrent projects by Dutch photographer Jacqueline Hassink (born 1966), both of which address our increasingly digitally connected world. In Unwired Landscapes, she seeks out those few remaining places where it is still impossible to broadcast a network: remote areas like the Japanese island of Yakushima, the Norwegian group of islands Svalbard known as Spitsbergen or the uninhabitable volcanic desert of Iceland, or artificially created dead zones in urban spaces, such as a Digital Detox Hotel in Baden Baden. Her second project, iPortrait, seems to be the exact opposite of her first: it portrays people immersed in their smartphones in the subways of big cities such as New York, Paris, London, Moscow, Shanghai, Seoul and Tokyo. Here, she reveals the other side of digital networking, showing how it intensifies alienation between people.


PRAISE AND REVIEWS

Aesthetica

"Unwired, by Jacqueline Hassink,... extends her interest in networks of global socioeconomic power into the realm of digital media, specifically the now-symbiotic connection between smartphone and user."

Bint Photobooks

Rianne Van Dijck

"confronts us with our smartphone addiction and appeals to our fundamental need for mental rest."

Fused Magazine

"images are of faraway remote regions like the Japanese island of Yakushima and the Norwegian island Svalbard, showing us often desolate landscapes and proving how far one has to travel to be free from connectivity. The peaceful landscapes are contrasted with Hassink’s ‘iPortrait’ images; a series of unposed, taken from the hip pictures of travellers on subway networks in Shanghai, London, New York and Tokyo who are engrossed in their smartphones. Images include information on the inhabitants of each cities phone usage and gives us an insight in to just how much we now rely on these devices and maybe how anti-social we are ultimately becoming."

Yoko Choy

Jacqueline Hassink goes off the grid to map our digital fixation… to remind us of the fundamental human need for inner peace.

NY Art Beat

"Unwired was born from Hassink’s desire to find places that offer neither cell phone reception nor wifi capability. The result is a series of arresting landscapes and interiors which stand in deliberate contrast to iPortrait"

DW

"Jacqueline Hassink’s unconventional photography book Unwired explores our longing for places that are off the grid with no connections to digital communication."
