Gravity of a Selfie

I am working on a new piece in honor of James Web Telescope with the Nebulae photos (totally open to a collab) but in the mean time here is an earlier piece comparing #selfie culture and #gravity

The idea being nothing is new and the pull of social networks works much like gravity. The internet reflects that which already exists in nature.

Networks are attention wells and as nodes gather mass they draw others into orbit. Context collapse much like five galaxies of senses dancing together.

At the same time identity can never truly be known online or in person.

Like classic relativity theory and Quantum physics they both must exist for the other to be real yet each theory should negate the other.

Who exactly are you when you take a selfie and share it online? Who is defining you? You or the algorithm?
