Prostress Intervention Channel for Salvation and Sanctification (PICSS), 2015

Photo manipulations / Facebook installation

The Prostress Intervention Channel for Salvation and Sanctification - PICCS is a platform where Hoogerbrugge posts his instant reactions to images that leap out at him while browsing the Internet, apparently ‘conducting research’ into materials for general use. In this way, he contributes every day to the constant stream of similarly manipulated online images (also by people who should get out more often) that all of us should do more to avoid. While some are constructed, others require only the slightest intervention to upend their original meaning – Hoogerbrugge tries to meddle as little as possible. After all, it doesn’t take much to make a sinner of a saint). These ‘photo-fucks’ could, some say, be construed as being socially relevant or of hinting of ‘deeper meanings’. Others suggest that they could reveal more about Hoogerbrugge than we might care to know, including the level of his often-questionable sense of humour.
