Social Media



Social Media no. 4 (film still, frame 221)

Social Media is a series of digital collage works that interrogates the impulse to capture and utilize our most basic human experiences and interactions. The urge to communicate with friends and family and the impulse to express creative identity have been commodified. Our ability to communicate and create our “selves” is controlled and owned by a small group of extremely powerful, wealthy and unregulated companies. I want to challenge that paradigm by illustrating that these constructs are the result of a creative process, not an unquestionable force that we must simply adapt to and accept as is.
