How many times have you been using Facebook, Email, Twitter, LinkedIn, or any of the dozens of forms of digital communication we use today, and had a strange experience while communicating with someone else?
Social Synapse is a project created in response to those weird feelings we’ve all experienced while communicating with others digitally. Through this project I hoped to explore the disconnect between interactions in a digital space, and those that are IRL (in real life).
By re-contextualizing these digital communications into a physical interaction, participants were forced to think more critically about how they interact with one another online. My first series of case studies focused on communications found on Facebook, the worlds most popular social network.
