Antisocial Social Media

29 Nov

Social media is so social it makes us antisocial. The time we spend in front of our computers being social is explored by artist Cristin Norine, who along with Josh Elliott, founded the Public Isolation Project, showing us that by being social online, we are actually being antisocial. Setting up shop in a floor-to-ceiling glass-covered room on a corner in Portland, Cristin is now on the 29th day of her 30-day goal to be publicly isolated. Skyping, Facebooking, Tweeting, emailing, and IMing, all in a glass room for 30 days, to show that you can be completely cut off from human interaction, while still interacting with humans.
