Artist fancies fate of post-apocalyptic social media

Dilapidated storefronts of Google, Instagram, Facebook and even Tinder languishing in deserted towns – that’s how graphic artist Andrei Lacatusu imagines the social media giants in a post-apocalyptic world.

Lacatusu’s latest series, “Social Decay,” attempts to explore the fate of tech titans in times when contemporary obsessions would fade away, writes Design Boom.

The installations feature worn out signs of tech companies with their letters falling off likening the state of social media to that of retailers in a world devoid of human communities.
