Overloaded with thousands of images, videos and messages as our thumb scrolls down, down, down… How does this make us feel? Conformation / Unwell / Lonely / Loved?
This is the state I am exploring with The Kurves project.
The more likes the better. Playing the game. Trying to share our ‘best moments’. Crying out for conformation. Crying out to the endless abyss of digital. Do we really need this in our lives?
Im confused by this right now. As a music creator and with this project I am digging deep, trying to NOT BE AFRAID to follow convention. Embrace the background noise that music has become. Create using the regular methods. Create with the mainstream. IT IS NOT UNIQUE. I AM NOT SPECIAL. non of us are. Or we can choose… I AM SPECIAL… all of us are. Either response is irrelevant… or should be irrelevant to anyone but ourselves. Right?
The more we choose to share and filter our lives with everyone the less we are really seeing our lives clearly and have the ability to actually steer our lives for ourselves. Really listening to our inner voice and steering that path.
I worry that social media almost dumbs us down. numb. ticking off days. trying for 15 minutes of fame. trying to find the formula. but the formula for what? For a great life or for ego success? thats really hard to explore. But somewhere this project is helping me explore these thoughts.
