Social networking websites such as Facebook have made an astounding impact on how we perceive ourselves, each other, and the world around us. We willingly and freely share the most intimate details of our lives with the world and are beginning to use this type of social networking to replace authentic social contact. Untagged aims to exhibit this phenomenon through art and encourage viewers to reflect upon the impact of social networking and technology upon their own lives and relationships. These works engage the viewer in a conversation that will challenge current notions of social interaction and cast a new light on the emergence of the “Age of Facebook.”
