Mercedes-Benz and the new CLA's "Untamed" Installation, ParisJuxtapoz // Friday, 17 May 2013
Countless Instagram photos are created every second. Photos that reflect particular points of view in the life circumstances of different people.But which motifs are really unique? Mercedes-Benz and the new CLA were looking for Instagram photos with that uniqueness. That are new. “Untamed”.
Users from all over the world were asked to take part on www.untamed-installation.com and upload their extraordinary views from their personal Instagram photo stream in sets of three. The idea behind this: the #Untamed Score showed how distinctive the style of the user’s photos was compared to those of others.
Mercedes-Benz collates these extraordinary views in #Untamed. A digital photo installation of a special kind.After the premier in Paris in April 2013, here and now the most outstanding photos are transported into an urban loft space,
but completely restaged: white, neutral. A constant with endless individual perspectives in which the white is then revived by real word sceneries and imaginary space-expanding illusions, inspired by the users’ Instagram photos.
