The Connected Aesthetic

The Connected Aesthetic

The philosophy of care ethics relies upon the fundamental belief that human existence is defined by the social web humans have created around themselves. It places caring and relationships at the center of moral dilemmas, prioritizing the duties inherent to the bonds people share. These bonds people make and break have come to define their personalities, their identities, and in turn, their very lives. Thinkers that work with care ethics focus on revolutionizing the way they think about morality and the human condition, reorienting from nebulous concepts to the tangible interactions they encounter everyday. Through the camera lens, I hope to capture some semblance of the importance connections people have in their lives, beyond the grandiose and glorified ideas of interaction society harbors. Perhaps the most important part that defines their relation to others are the small things, the minutiae of it all that paints a connected aesthetic.
