#GenY Problems: All our Exes Live in Texts (Or Facebook posts, Instagrams, Tweets, etc..)

 
 

In a recent article by The Huffington Post, I came across Victoria Siemer‘s “Human Error” series. The artist’s polaroids perfectly capture love and life in the digital era in which we live. I don’t know about you, but the emotional struggles us Millennials go through each day continue to increase in shades of grey and I don’t see any black and whites in our horizon.

Not only do we deal with uncertainty, the hook-up culture, feelings, and heartbreak, but when things go bad we can’t simply take that person out of our lives. Enter Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and all those saved text messages and screenshots we have on our phone, to remind us that this person is still out there. Living  Enjoying life…without you.

If only there were computerized commands such as the ones displayed in this clever series to make things simpler for us. “Delete all feelings?” YES PLEASE.
