The Social Medium is a pop-up installation in which members of the public will be encouraged to curate content, using popular elements of social media ‘displaced’ into real life. Our graffiti wall inside the space will serve as an alternative to status updates and tweets, allowing participants to share their thoughts – good or/and bad. There will also be a sound installation featuring the audio recordings of tweets and our instant photo gallery will allow participants one shot at taking the perfect photo using a classic Polaroid camera . No retakes and no filters!
