HOW OUR PSYCHOLOGY HAS WARPED IN THE POST-INTERNET CONTEXT? 

WITH EACH INSTANCE OF MODERN FETISHES, PHOBIAS, NEUROSES, AND MANIAS, CONDITIONED BY OUR EVOLVING RELATIONSHIP WITH MEDIA TECHNOLOGY, IT’S A SADOMASOCHISM THAT CONFLATES PAIN AND PLEASURE, FEARS AND FANTASIES, PRIVACY AND EXPOSURE, VOYEURISM AND EXHIBITIONISM, TRUTH AND LIES, EMPATHY AND APATHY. 

 

I STUDY THE PHYSICALITY OF THE PLATFORMS AND THE ARCHETYPES OF OUR INTERACTIONS WITH EACH PROJECT. THEN I REMAKE THEM INTO ARCHITECTURES THAT STRIPS AWAY THE PASSIVITY OF SPECTATORSHIP/USER EXPERIENCE, TO SHED LIGHT ON THE LONG-TERM EFFECTS MEDIA TECHNOLOGY HAVE HAD ON MENTAL HEALTH AND SELF-IDENTITY.
