This work is about Amanda Todd, a 15-year-old Canadian teenager whose suicide was attributed to cyber-bullying through the social networking website Facebook. On September 7, 2012, Todd posted a video on YouTube entitled My Story: Struggling, Bullying, suicide and self harm, in which she used a series of flash cards to tell of her experience of being blackmailed, bullied, and physically assaulted. I combined her words with found material from YouTube.

„Which effects does the self-evident fact of supervision have for the supervised? What is private sphere called in a time in which a data protection scandal follows the next and becomes the spreading and marketing of personal data the leisure activity for one and the annoyance for the others? And what does it mean if not more only holiday snaps are made massively accessible with Facebook, but also sexual predilections on Internet platforms are presented?
In his photographs Fred Hüning puts these questions in urgent manner: A blurred look at the feet of a loving pair or a woman on a sofa whose naked shoulders are massaged by the hands of an other person, besides a black plush cat who seems to stare in the camera. For his works Hüning has selected some video clips from the internet, has photographed scenes of the monitor and afterwards digitally reworked. Moreover, he adds the temporal signature and gives the number of the calls of the respective video. Maybe strikes only in connection with other pictures of the series that the focus of the photographer lies less on what the people in the pictures do, as on the private living rooms in which they are.“
