eighteen fifteen

The prevalence of human behavior in terms of romance, attraction, desire, and/or crude behavior, either solicited or otherwise, is as ubiquitous as technology in our daily lives.


This exhibition seeks to explore our day to day interactions online, on social media, and other technological platforms regarding human emotional and/or sexual behavior.


Artists are cordially invited to submit images of works that address this theme in any interpretation they consider relevant.. Works in all media including digital and film are encouraged, and all submissions will be given equal consideration.
