What is the connection between Social Networks and Being Lonely?

Ah, that amazing moment when great animation meets a great idea. I’ve been inspired by the work of Shimi Cohen
for a while. He is mainly a motion. animation and  graphic design (for his website and portfolio, click here) In his final project for Shenkar College of Engineering and Design he designed, scripted and produced this piece called “The Innovation of Loneliness”. As our digital personas becomes a greater force in our sense of self and reality questions of authenticity and social cohesion needs to be addressed. The animation drowns from work by Sherry Turkle presented at TED talk.
