The Allegory
of Social Media

This project is a collaboration with writer David Jankowsky, the text is an interpretation of Plato's "Allegory of the Cave" using the context of modern times, technology of smartphones and social media. The book is meant to simulate the scrolling of an Instagram chat between the public and Plato, analyzing how we are trapped inside of our virtual worlds. The collage and text were made simultaneously as an alternative workflow between writer and designer.
