The longer social media remains a part of our lives, the more our part of the love affair begins to reflect that of the abused in a dysfunctional relationship; we know it’s bad for us (our self-esteem, our general well-being), yet we just can’t call it quits. With increased frequency, artists are exploring the trauma caused by this modern construct. And, broadly speaking, it’s the subject of a new and delightfully named exhibition of photographs from Florida-based interdisciplinary artist McKinna Anderson now on display at Florida Mining Gallery.
McKinna’s work investigates the intimate boundaries that are dissolved when we engage with social platforms, and mini golf of sensual sports finds McKinna swiping through the infamous hookup app Tinder, a ritualistic exercise among many digital natives.
