The project deals with social network slang and how facebook stages ordinary things. The pictures are critical, metaphorical illustrations, that shall give a humorous view on the social network scene. They are visual translations of facebook-sayings, just as abstract as their content. By avoiding eye contact with the individuals, they turn into designed images of people on an artificial stage. They seem to become inhuman props. None of them really interact with each other, they’re all absorbed in their own little play. The virtual network, is simply replaced by a real local habitat, thereby highlighting its absurdity.
The illustrated image topics are:
-Only some friends see you
-Joining a group
-Changing relationship status/Commenting
-Tagging in Pictures
-Playing mafia wars
-People you may know
-Being a fan of...
-Asking Questions/Start a poll
The project shall make people reflect on the curious structures of modern online parallel societies. How social are our social networks?
