Felt Cute, Might Delete Later

The series “Felt Cute Might Delete Later”, draws inspiration from the modern phenomenon of self-expression and ephemeral digital content. In this project, the aim is to explore the transient nature of self-representation and the evolving identity in the age of social media. By combining the artistic medium of self-portraiture with the ubiquitous online trend, this series delves into the complexities of self-perception, and authenticity. 

The self-portraits in this series serve as a means for self-exploration, enabling the artist to reflect upon his own vulnerability, self-image, and quest for external validation. The series delves into the underlying societal pressures and expectations that influence self-portrayal on social media. It critically examines the tension between authenticity and performance.

By embracing the “Felt Cute, Might Delete Later” ethos, the series captures the nuanced emotions and multi-faceted nature of self-perception. The series seeks to provoke thought, spark conversation, and encourage viewers to reflect upon their own experiences within the digital landscape.
