Adam Mars waxes poetic to the "lost MTV generation" in his series, the aptly-titled 'Once Upon a Time, We Weren't Stalkers.' The exhibition features ironic slogans spray-painted across vibrant backgrounds.
The installation acts as a social commentary for the digital age. It speaks to the ways in which technology and social media have actually inhibited and infringed upon our real-life communication and ability to connect.
At first, the phrases might seem comical -- "Gluten-free Cunnilingus," "Carpal Tinder Syndrome" and "The Last Online Lovers" -- but on closer inspection, they are kind of sad. Tragic, really. Underneath Mars' sardonic wit lies a deep longing for human connection, one that is not being met, despite our hyper-connected world.
