As social networks continue to grow and pervade our personal lives, they will inspire projects like the Net Effect editorial. This abstract photo spread explores the idea of our digital identities and how they affect our actual identities in the real world.
Shot by Ben Sandler with art direction by Bonsoir Paris, who also created the intriguing installation, the Net Effect editorial depicts both struggle and acceptance, as though those are the two main emotions we experience when interacting online with our digital selves. Paris writes that the Net Effect project depicts the "philosophical dialogue between the human form and the immaterial representation of our digital selves." The metallic installations he has created "serve as metaphors of representations in the digital realm."
The Net Effect editorial appeared in Amusement Magazine N°12.
