Submissions Now Closed

Theme

The social media age provides the average user with a platform to contribute to the collective conversation. It has fostered a new awareness in the way we see ourselves and are perceived by others. We put our social approval on the line, and risk being canceled, with every post we type.

R
eflective objects, such as mirrors, allow identity and environment to intertwine within a single frame. The exploration of self through material objects prompts reflection about our being, belongings, and spaces. The selfie both a constraint and a freedom. We curate which elements of our identity and chosen environment are seen. Selfies invite others to approve or disapprove our interests and attitudes. Captions like “felt cute, might delete” grant us permission to retract the action and explore a different avenue.

For Might Delete: Share the Reflected Narrative, designers and makers will create reflective objects where the viewer can project their current selves onto. It is up to them to determine what pictures they'll take, upload, and might delete.
 

Criteria

Might Delete: Share the Reflected Narrative is set to be on view during Design Week in NYC. Submissions are now open and will close on March 31, 2023. Selected participants will be notified the second week of April 2023. **UPDATE: The submission deadline has been extended to April 15, 2023.**

Submissions will be welcomed from everyone as long as they consider themselves a designer or maker. Because we want all designs to participate in the conversation of sharing through reflection, there are no material or object stipulations.

Might Delete: Share the Reflective Narrative will be on display at Canal Street Market in downtown Manhattan during NYCxDESIGN week - May 18-25, 2023. Join us for a celebration of design and of those who are currently making great work!
