Creature-like Folders

This moving image piece aims to expose the vulnerability and melancholy of a generation forced to live across different realms, online and offline. Technology and the internet play a key role in our lives. Whilst loneliness isn’t something new, it takes on a new dimension for these reasons. This girl is feeling lonely yet she holds in her hand such potential to connect and communicate – this has, one could argue, become the paradox of our generation. We gain momentary yet intense satisfaction from shallow online interactions which are increasingly hard to translate into real-life situations.
