A peek into the outrageous and hilarious broadcasting room of a you-tube cyber celebrity - A personification of a virtual identity stuck within the regulating algorithms of a social media platform, floating somewhere in the inter-webs of cyber space and time:
A world desperate for real connection.
A world from which it is impossible to disconnect
A world in which all connection/communication happens only via a Wall.
An introspection on notions of identity and image, reality and perception, our need for real connection and inclusion coupled with our inability to disconnect ourselves from the virtual world (and our virtual identities in it).
A revolt against all such virtual identities and virtual walls - of race, color, gender, class, religion, nationality etc that we build or are systematically imposed upon us that divide, separate, exclude, regulate and restrict us from real connection and access to ourselves and each other. www.embeddedtheshow.com
