JESSICA MARX

The purpose of this project is to raise questions about social awareness and the news. How do we decide what is newsworthy and what is not? An apathetic stance towards one topic or another often leads to being lumped into the "ignorant" or "lowbrow" crowd. Should we feel ashamed for feeling apathy towards the news? Should we feel guilty for choosing not to know? Even in instances where a person actively filters out specific kinds of news, they may be scorned. Following Japanese mythology, by attempting to fold one thousand cranes marked by apathy. I hope to absolve this shame through a meditative process.
