Saffron's Website

Social media has become the mainstream means for connecting people. Whilst this has brought plenty of positives, there is also a downside as it presents limitless potential for users to compare themselves against each other.

With over 1 billion users, Instagram in particular has been reported to be the most detrimental to young peoples’ mental health, showing off a curated version of every day life that isn’t necessarily authentic.

Saffron filmed a stop motion animation on her iPhone that captures typical Instagram posts but also shows what is often the reality off-screen.
