“Back to Back Clouds“, Wilmington, NC 2016This spring I became immersed in the fake Facebook event phenomenon where people were creating and promoting bogus concerts online. I set out to photograph as many as I could, even if that meant photographing a rural South Carolina video rental store at 2:30am. Like my Removed series, this body of work relies heavily on direct interaction with other humans while I explore the messy intersection of the physical and virtual world. In simplest terms, the project is an example of the divisiveness and manipulation that occurs through our beloved social media platforms.

During my talk at TEDxBend I discussed how my wife and I changed our device habits. Our bedroom is a space that we consider a no phone zone which not only allows for several hours of more sleep each week but also affords us time alone with one another where we can reflect on our day. My parents, Cindy and Glenn Pickersgill own a small metal art business and together we created this sign. More information can be found here.
