We hope to demonstrate the correlation between isolation and friendship. Innately isolated individuals (humans) are progressively pressured to socialize in the virtual world. This paradox closely applies to the contemporary age where humans can bypass the need of time and places to form fragile friendships. This becomes more prominent as time progresses and generates a depressing experience for ‘friendships 2050’.
We started off by creating a series of sculptures using ‘Lonesome George’, a tortoise of an extinct species as reference. Various sounds and recordings exchanged during the 30 days are mixed in to form a video with an abstract plot.
