We’re living in the age of data and information. It is supposed to help us having a quality life, reach our goals faster and easier but it slowly makes us believe that the main reason of living is to reach a goal faster and before others, while totally forgetting the joy of being in the road.

We have birthday reminders, automated postal card senders, even ridiculous swiping apps to help us find love!

We are frightened of being lonely and there’s no one to talk to about it. We are slowly fading among mass information.

We just talk in order to reach a reasonable result and we easily give up on people. We are just calculating, comparing and deciding! It’s just like searching the web and changing the keywords one after another.

We are forgetting this simple fact that we need to share our feeling and emotions in order to survive the loneliness we feel deep inside.

‘A Piece Of Me’ celebrates the power of sharing our deepest emotions and thoughts with each other, without hiding behind our digital egos. At least it lets us know we are not the only ones who are disappearing among these databases!
