Netflix and Chill - @now.a.magpie
Netflix and Chill is a new photobook by @now.a.magpie, exploring online dating culture and photography in today’s digital society. This work presents the online experience of Sarah, 23, featuring some of the Tinder moments sent her way. Sarah is fictional. Tinder Moments were a part of the dating app for a limited time during 2014 and 2015.
Netflix and Chill provides an insight into how the integration of photography, dating culture and technology are an integral part of communication today. Transitioning to an online environment permits a level of anonymity, as well as an ability to explore and express multiple identities. The images presented in Netflix and Chill are part of a unique archive exploring the liberation of expression new technology has permitted. The result is a portrait of a society experiencing and exploring a new and evolving complexity with which one can represent – or misrepresent – one’s self online.
