Social media platforms have created their own capitalist and consumerist culture that is spreading trans-nationally as they utilize user data to predict their future behaviors. Every single move we take is captured by tech giants and recycled back to us in the form of advertisements.

I observe the catastrophic physical impact of this digital sphere in my society and its impact on the perception of beauty. Shaped by the forces of social media culture, many people develop an obsession with the perfect body, which leads them to extreme plastic surgeries and overconsumption of western cosmetic products. The result is a horrific dystopia made out of delusional fantasies and plastic.
