Edible Social Media: A Speculation


EDIBLE SOCIAL MEDIA

c.2016

At a time where social media has become our daily source of news, a platform for interaction with others and source of entertainment it can be difficult to envision what will be the next step. For the most part, social media has stayed in the exterior of our own bodies, becoming information that can be perceived and digested from the exterior, What if social media could occupy the body? Edible Social Media takes the shape of an edible vessel which through the release of endorphin, dopamine, serotonin and other naturally occurring chemicals in the body could make us feel our interactions with others.
