Faculty mentor: CoCo James

Artist’s Statement: The internet was invented in the 1960. However this is not the true start of what we know as the internet. In the early 2000s places like Youtube, MySpace and Reddit became the new social stomping grounds of the masses. Many great things have come from this newfound connection people have discovered. People can meet and discuss digitally while being on opposite sides of the world. The internet can serve as an escape from a lonely world however it is not consequence free, escaping can cause a desensitization to affection and social connection. The loneliest people that exist reside in the digital domain. It is an escape from a lack of social connection. The internet contains the craziest things the world can offer. It is the pinnacle of human creation, an amalgamation of everything the world has ever known.
