This body of work explores ideas surrounding the filtration of social issues through social media and associated devices, with specific reference to the South African landscape. Social media has created a culture of hands off activism. It allows people to voice opinions (educated and/or not) on issues through tweets, status updates, hashtags and shares, in the safety of their own home.
Social media has the ability to switch between serious and playful topics, often even a combination of the two at the speed of a double click. It combines things in extremes, from the frivolity of selfies to intense current issues. It is this dynamic that is both powerful and pointless that I am most interested in.
