The Boost Project

Installation, Technological, Feelings, Political / Social, Ideas, Various materials, 500x500x500cm
The Boost Project is an interactive, living installation aiming to explore how social media can allow us to live within an alternate reality; one in which we can easily attain a heightened sense of belonging, or a fleeting state of appreciation. The inflating orb aims to emulate the acceptance and self worth we can feel after receiving ‘likes’ on our posts or pictures online. Each time the orb is followed, receives a facebook like, or is tagged in a tweet with #theboostproject it gradually increases in size until it reaches its peak. If ignored, it begins to subtly deflate over time and fade into the background of our lives
