if you don't post it, did it even happen?

We as humans want to be seen and have our voices be heard. Whether we choose to acknowledge it or not, we feel a strong need for the validation of others. We want the things we think, say, and experience to be known and appreciated by not only our friends, but sometimes even by complete strangers. And the person we are online can start to feel like someone completely different from who we are in real life. Ask yourself why every like, comment, and share is so important. Why does it matter? What do you really gain?

 

This installation was intended to be an experience that impacts the viewer, who enters a room and is confronted by honest thoughts and a projection showing the use of social media.
