Snapshot was derived from a collaboration between Golob Art and the members of Wellesley High School’s Diversity Club. The art itself places a series of small laser-etched screenshots of memes, texts, and social media conversations occurring among high school students during the 2016 election period alongside a large and imposing photo-transfer of a photo of Trump winning the election. The result is a project that empowers youth, examines the role and language of social media, and takes an honest snapshot of political dynamics in the United States.
