In our digital world, people generally opt for perfection over authenticity. The current generation are pressured to live up to social media standards, especially in the digital images shared on social media. The perception of perfection versus imperfection has changed dramatically over the years. We rarely see people posting pictures without using Snapchat or Instagram’s perfecting filters, which modifies and enhances the visual aesthetics of the photographs. This distortion sets us up against unattainable standards. This project explores the concept of the digital representation on social media and the myth of perfection.
