One of my favorite stories to explore is the relationship we have to the world we live in because of its constant, dynamic flux. The connections we have to other people have become broader because of the internet and the increasing inclination to live in cities but they have also become shallower due to the decrease in communities and deeper communication. We are more informed than ever, from world events to an acquaintance’s vacations, but I believe we’re also more isolated in our selves. We share freely our snapchat happiness but conceal our struggles, whether active or emotive, in order to maintain an exactly edited outward appearance. In the Modern World series, I am examining the fluid relationships we have with each other, ourselves, and the global community and how these relationships transform as our modes of communication and interrelation advance at such a staggering rate.
