24 Hours Online

 

 

In the Project '24 Hours Online' Françesca Alessandro decided to look at the way women are treated online. She used a site called MyYearbook, which she had been using since she was about 12, as she had been sent many disturbing messages from there. The messages in this project are real messages she had received, these are ones she obtained within the time period set up, there are many more messages like these that she had gotten from a young age. In this project she uses a mixture of text, symbolic objects, and self-portraits to create a narrative of her day online. In the first self-portrait she shows her face, in the self-portraits after the messages her identity is no longer visible, the messages do not treat her as a person but more as an object for their fascinations. Alessandro has kept the series simple and raw, creating a powerful message about the treatment women face online and its effect on women growing up.
