In the age of social media, where the line between your online identity and your true self is increasingly blurred, the pursuit for a "perfect " and "unique" reflection of life, has led to a struggle to be different in the same way. It is the perfect lie that is shown with our feeds and profile pictures that leads us to a heavier "pixellated" reality. This is a reflection of my own struggle.

The circle frame of the film is supposed to mimic popular social media profile pictures like Instagram. The plain white ghost costume represents our "perfect" social media identities, and also a reference to the Snapchat ghost. The audio is created with a minuscule "choppy" sampling method to create a sense of "fractured perfection".
