Erica Scourti, Feels For Real, 2015–ongoing

commentsErica Scourti, Feels For Real, 2015

Instagram’s recent crackdown on the illicit economy of fake followers, likes and comments has seen only the smartest of spam accounts survive. For one week only, Erica Scourti will interact with some of these phonies by bulk-buying comments for a selection of her Instagram photos and then commenting back on the fake account holders’ pictures in an attempt to start a conversation.

Scourti’s Instagram takeover originally ran from 19 – 25 January 2015. The project continues below, and on our Instagram @threeletterwords.
