Dana Hong will need to approve that you worked on “The SecondHand-Self” before we add you as a collaborator.

The SecondHand-Self

How often do you go back to your “posts that I liked” history on Instagram?
Simply pressing heart button for a photo is easy. Because it doesn’t leave any traces on your feed, which we’re all obsessed to keep cool and fun, aren’t we?
However, would you be actually comfortable and confident enough to face those photos you liked’ again in real life? Would there be any certain patterns behind those photos you liked? Would people define or judge you based on those photos you liked?
Face yourself with the ‘photos you liked’ and ask, “These photos that belong to someone else.. are they telling anything about yourself?”
