Amigos Pérdidos (2015)

Amigos Pérdidos (Lost Friends) is a layered composition that strives to illustrate our contemporary habit of depersonalization. Thematically, it focuses on the loss of connections between people. As our digital selves grow in popularity, friendships often become intangible and inaccessible. With so many ghosts haunting our news feeds, even briefly glimpsing into another’s life becomes a futile task. Constructed with an amalgamation of the 1515 Facebook profile pictures of my “Friends”, this production is an autobiographic reflection on the actuality of friendship. However, as with the piece itself, reality changes as one steps away from it.
