Inhaling Through Social Media.


It’s strange. Social media was once a form of communication, a means of interacting with people and rekindling lost friendships. They have now become networks to preserve and document our lives, to validate our existence to others. We have not only lost the essence of survival, but we are becoming reliant on social media to be our source of advocacy and nourishment.

With check-ins and updates. Relationship statuses and photographs. We are creating a stalkers haven in an attempt to authenticate our existence by detailing occasions.

Social media has become a form of bragging, a depiction of the perfect lives that we want to be living. We document our good sides, burying our darkness in the shadows. The outward exterior is all that matters, but are we not ridding our bodies of substance as we progress?

As technology evolves, we are becoming more distant from each other, breeding jealousy and malice into living. Humanity has discovered the art of portrayal, masquerading truth and blurring it into magnetic precision. 

We’re all just living as part of a lie, a conspiracy on a broken thread intertwined with our bones.
