I suppose that we all trust this thing will not be a bust. Anything’s better than a cold, stale letter. Hope for some seconds of lust.
My current work explores the desire behind the nonchalance of social media. Consumerist culture has found a new product: people. Digital communication has facilitated the consumption of relationships resulting in a confused understanding of what it means to ‘know’ somebody. My work concerns itself with the level to which a 'person' can be transmitted digitally. A sentence shared digitally, from a stranger, carries with it very little of that person and will likely manifest as a projection of the recipient’s ideals. In what ways have changes in social dynamic have affected our understanding of intimacy, vulnerability and sincerity? What tools have we developed, if any, to discern physical from digital, material from immaterial, truth from fiction?
