Zahra is exhibiting an immersive experience called Party People. By creating an online profile and translating illustrations into a three-dimensional space, Zahra is creating an environment of the modern social media influencer. This embodies hyper exaggerated personas, a saturation of content, and of course sponsorships. The digital profile, Goddamn Animals, sponsors these personas that will be present during the exhibition. While audiences explore the space, they will have a chance to meet these personas and connect with them physically as they do digitally.
