The project EGO selfie hotel with sound bath arises in the smartphone era, in which we are conditioned by a need for social visibility. This need impels us to connect to the internet daily, posting and sharing personal content, selfies and images that speak of us, of our private and sentimental life, on social networks, sometimes even of our sex life.
Why is it that all of us, today more than ever, we need so much social visibility and to show others our daily lives, to make it extraordinary, like we’re always starring in a hit movie?
If we believe that we were not able to become what we aspired to be, we’ll always feel a little unsatisfied and frustrated with who we are. One can say that in this case we suffer from a crippled narcissism, that is, a feeling of self that contains a wound that asks to be healed. We cure it every time we increase our value by posting content and images on social network, waiting for a collective approval, which we return to other people out of gratitude, satisfying the same need for confirmation of value.
The only rule of Ego selfie hotel is to take a selfie.
