Lebanese artists Lina Saneh and Rabih Mroué created a multimedia performance that explores the relationship between what's public and private and how social media has affected that balance, specifically for Lebanese society.
Entitled "33 RPM and a Few Seconds," the performance is based on the true story of a Lebanese activist whose Facebook profile was made public after his suicide, allowing for random people to fill his timeline (or wall as it was called in 2011) with messages of support and hate. Of their piece, Saneh says, "politically, Facebook was a secret tool to organize and communicate. In this personal story, there's no organization. It's a kind of chaos. Even people who aren't the activist's friends can write whatever they want on his board."
