Social Media: the ever-evolving black hole of self-promotion and memes took the world by storm 14 years ago with the launch of (the at the time super exclusive) Facebook. Love it or hate it, social media has completely altered our definition of human interaction. Digital artist, Mike Campau, uses photography and digital street signs to share his interpretation of this phenomenon in his social media art project, Antisocial.

Snapchat

Where you go for fun filters and regret anytime, anywhere. “Check out this thing I did! Oh wait, no stop, I take it back! Also, I can look like a dog. Bark, bark!”

Facebook

At first, a place to post random thoughts and feelings about that weird smell coming from your college roommate’s closet; now an information board for anything, everything and everyone.

Instagram

A photo diary of the life of your puppy and a new obsession with avocados, even a place to showcase your businesses portfolios. A great place to post surprises and fun events.

Twitter

The soundbites of life all in one place. A great place to play Devil’s Advocate.

Linkedin

Facebook’s more mature cousin. The perfect place for introverts to network professionally.

Behance

Behance is like Goodreads, but for artists. A place to share and like art and gain traction in hipster art circles. Created by Adobe, so you know it’s legit.

Campau’s refreshing Social Media art exposes us to the reality of internal transformation we have all experienced every time we log on for the like. The artist uses Photoshop and Lightroom to generate the signage effects of his social media art. Each sign glows brightly in a dark and abandoned parking lot, a representation of our isolated yet desperate attempts for attention.
