Senses, Perception, Objects and Space Project

Title: Social (Anxiety) Media

Created by: Adhiti Chundur, Gauri Laxman

Our project was a projection installation that focused on the emotional weight that social media and the constant influx of information we receive from it affects us. We structured a visual and auditory buildup of phone notifications, news casters, and entertainment media to mirror a normal "day in the life," with a slow buildup at the beginning and a quick decrescendo into serene mountains and nature photos. The duration of the "tranquil" section represents sleep, where we are forced to take a break from social media.
