Kill Your Darlings
Kill Your Darlings shows the transformation of teenage girls as beautiful little darlings into cruel little devils.
This transformation shows how digital culture has changed how we think about privacy, bullying and the use of real-time media.
Kill Your Darlings shows the ‘private’ social circles of young teenage girls. We can look past their perfect, pretty and cute profile photo’s and see their not so perfect and often shocking tweets that they use to publicly insult, offend and abuse. Kill Your Darlings uses small LCD-keychains shaped in the form of a little heart to show this content. Each individual heart first shows a picture of a teenage girl to be followed up by one of her most hateful tweets which can completely shatter her ‘perfect’ image.
