Echo Chambers are virtual rooms in which the illusion of a “related multitude” is infinitely real. The installation intends to investigate the real nature of social media, which we suppose to be equal and democratic instruments of interchange and sharing, indeed they have turned out to be gigantic mirrors palaces in which each seeks and finds confirmation of his opinions and sees himself reflected, their beliefs and their malaise, as well as very efficient instruments of political propaganda. The eco-chambers are thus the immaterial cast of the infinity mirror, in which the all-human tendency to the hypertrophy of the ego doesn’t find obstacles to its own boundless reflection.
