Concept

Pada dasarnya semua manusia memiliki 'ego' di dalam dirinya—yang berpengaruh besar terhadap proses pencarian jari diri. Media sosial belakangan hadir sebagai media untuk aktualisasi. Faktanya, bahasa visual menjadi media utama untuk menyampaikan ‘ego’ diri ke permukaan. Hal ini mengakibatkan ketergantungan dan seolah menjadi kebutuhan sehari-hari demi mendongkrak eksistensi diri.

Fenomena ini tidak lepas dari bagaimana cara orang mengemas bentuk visual tadi sebelum akhirnya dipublikaskan agar diapresiasi sesuai keinginan subjek. Fokusnya, tidak jarang apa yang kita lihat dan terima dari media sosial tidak sesuai dengan fakta/kenyataannya. Pertanyaan yang muncul, apakah itu sebuah tindakan yang konyol? Atau bentuk kreativitas yang perlu diapresiasi?

  

Basically all human have 'ego' in themselves—which has great influence on their process of self discovery. The social media lately presents itself as a media for actualization. The fact is visual language becomes the main media to convey self 'ego' to the surface. It causes dependency and as if it becomes a daily need to push the self existence.

This phenomenon can't be separated from how people prepare such visual image before launching it in order to get appreciation the way they want it. The thing is what we see and what get from social media doesn't represent the fact/ the reality. The question that arises is is it a ridiculous act? Or a form of creativity that needs to be appreciated?
