mixed media installation, 2014

How do we portray ourselves on social media, and why? What do we show, and what do we hide? Doing research on social media, I discovered contradicting patterns in the way we present ourselves online. We feel insecure, and simultaneously share our selfies constantly. We feel alone, while simultaneously chatting with thousands of other people. With this installation, that uses the phones of the audience, I wanted to recreate this paradoxical experience.
