@facebook_cull (2017 ongoing)

@facebook_cull a collaboration with Samuel Dillon, is a continuation of their research into the online ritual of the 'facebook cull'. Consisting of a twitter account which automatically retweets people tweeting about culling their friends on facebook.

The work acts as both an archive of and crowd sourced commentary on a modern ritual.  the nature sociality in a post-internet world.


The tweets vary from humour to genuine heartfelt sentiments, but each public statement of 'culling' highlights the incongruity between the public void of the internet and the 'cull' as an assertion of an individuals control over their sociality, privacy and individuality. To what extent does the social network in enabling this also neuter it.
