#Blessed brings together 8,000 digital Instagram snaps, all taken in a single day and presents them IRL (in real life). Curator, Christin Aucunas, mined Instagram for images with #blessed, a hashtag that has been used over 34 million times since Instagram’s inception. Users classify their own sense of "#blessed" making the content wildly diverse from the spiritual to the profane. In a community as unique and as global as Instagram’s users, what is our collective view of #blessed in a world where the secular and spiritual often strain to exist together? The exhibition does not seek to offer any definite answer to these questions, but offers a visual trace of the curators own adventures in the digital photographic playground.
