300 million photos are uploaded to Facebook each day and over 75 hours of video uploaded to YouTube every minute. Communication is becoming increasingly visual as we live our lives more and more through shared images and video mediated by our computer screens. This body of work acts as a response to this contemporary shift in our desires to document and distribute experience. Our fascination with the lives of others is no contemporary phenomenon, nor is our want to share our own experience with the world. It is more that media-sharing sites such as Facebook, YouTube and Flickr are making it easier to do so. Image sharing is a trend that is growing daily. What this project aims to do is highlight the accessibility of personal experience though these platforms.
