Project Idea: Social Media Greek Chorus
How does twitter/social media act as a collective greek chorus for current tragedy // sound or video installation that somehow combines tweets into a script //perhaps a live performance?
How do we envision ourselves as the protagonist of our own new Netflix series while in reality we are too afraid to post anything that goes against the community values of our social media and mete out punishment on those who stray? How does our “curation” of our news feeds end up distilling them into a single voice? What does it mean when we become the one who strays?
What is lost when we don’t engage with a plurality of voices? Does a plurality of voices still exist or are we (self)categorizing our analog world into a digital space, only fit to deal with expressions of two types?
