TOPIC: “PRIVATE ISSUE”
Public vs. Private. We are fearful of mass surveillance by the state, yet we choose to subject ourselves to the scrutiny of the public sphere by sharing bits and pieces of our private life on social media. This alters the way we perceive our home: a possible safe space from potential judgements or a refuge from the hassles of life. We devote ourselves to simple tasks and simple pleasures, longing for simpler times. Getting married, buying a home, having children - conventional values are seeing a revival, even so, if we add an ironic winking emoji to them.
