This body of works draws its inspiration entirely from social networks, radicalizing and flattening the pursuit of happiness and success. The images in the series are collected from various sources on the Internet which I break down and creates exaggerated scenes of joy and happiness. The fake, the shallow empathy, the obvious admiration, and such other competing images and reactions on social networks, are expressed and being even further ridiculed.

Alongside this body of work, I have launching a new, network-based project that is set to expand and exist in various art spaces. It is an interactive project in which viewers can answer questions that will periodically present. The answers to the questions will be through feedback devices and the viewers will be able to click on different buttons in the style of social media icons that represent their satisfaction, enjoyment or opinion on different topics. The data will be uploaded immediately to a server and the analysis will be graphically displayed in real time. 

*The questions I have presented alongside  #MYLIFEISAMAZING exhibition dealt with the inequality of women in the art sector

 "People often don't make it a top priority to make time for doing the things that they say make them "happy," like spending time with family and friend.  "They actually want to maximize their satisfaction with themselves and with their lives. And that leads in completely different directions than the maximization of happiness." Daniel Kahneman
