“Fauxtography’ is about the curated self-narrative on social media; the anxiety of searching for validation and self-worth from whatever we mean when we say ‘engagement’ today.” Marites Velasquez
“In the video, Ovef Ow members find themselves undergoing a series of transformations, from buttoned-up business types to space age cult leaders, ultimately freezing in time as a spectacle from another era.” Dan Goldin, Post Trash (post-trash.com)
