Vanity

Instagram, Facebook, social networks, and the request for attention.

The lack of self-esteem, the withering of real relationships bring continuosly people to post new pictures, status updates. In the past, individuals used to call their friends and family and to talk on the phone about life, job and the usual matters. Now instead, they declare how they are or how they want to be perceived by posting photos, quotes, random sentences and waiting for some sort of response by others: a like, an appraisal, some time even an insult. Anything rather than indifference.

Words should be spoken, while they are mostly written through comments of strangers and imaginary human beings.

Rather than being connected, people get more and more alienated in a surreal, ethereal world.
