the lives of others
Editorial Design II Project

#thelivesofothers presents the transposition of the digital experience in an Instagram account to a printed object in order to provide understanding of how this virtual and social activity materialises. In addition, it aims to explore the dependency on social networks that people have been revealing, resulting in the devaluation of the paper book and its typology of content. This dependency on social networks results in the need to reinvent the role of the book through appropriation and intervention in the other’s intimacy. The truth is, the stories as we know them don’t seem to matter as much as the stories that other people publish.
