Sean Fader

Artist's Website

In today's media-saturated environment, where the private is regularly broadcast as public, we are constantly reminded that social media is altering our capacity to know others. My work makes space for sincerity in the heart of social media’s spectacle. I put my queer male body between the framework of photography, performance, social media identities, and internet celebrity culture. Using the facade of self-obsessed reality TV and selfie culture, my work attempts to undermine the dissociative, alienating and distancing aspects of social media and photography by creating the space for real-life, personal exchange-- with an ironic wink to the viewer.
