SPIN, the Martin Parr Foundation and the Rising Arts Agency are pleased to share a new commission exploring the relationship between secrecy and ignorance.
What does secrecy mean to you?
Who keeps secrets, how and why?
What is ignorance?
How might secrecy and ignorance be interconnected?
Responding to these questions, Olu Osinoiki of Olumedia created the photographic work Social Suffocation (2020).
“WARNING: To avoid the danger of ignorance, disconnection, depression or anxiety, keep social media away from every living soul. Social media is not a toy.” – Olu Osinoiki
Osinoiki received guidance from Rising, MPF and Martin Parr throughout the development of this project, as well as from academics based at SPIN.
A selection of Social Suffocation postcards have been produced and are available in the Martin Parr Foundation gallery in Bristol. You can follow Osinoiki’s work via his website Olumedia.
