Desires In A Wrecked Society/ Editorial. Newsprint. Research. / 2019
Social media has allowed us to produce our own outward persona to the public, while presenting our own fabricated sense of authenticity. We are all guilty of alter the realities in which we live in order to impress friends, act in accordance with family pressures and affiliate with cultural and societal expectations. Sometimes we misrepresent the truth because of hiding different self-consciousness realities. Constantly photographing ourselves to mimic lifestyles we desire to imply that our lives are more astonishing than they are. Although this behavior occurs globally, social structures in many different communities and cultures place a significant importance on how we are supposed to conduct ourselves both publicly and privately. This newsprint investigates the idea of why attempting to be perfect is so imperfect.
