'museum of me' collages your digital self into a 360 degree chorus of content

inside the museum of me, many screens and an AI await a digital vessel. after providing your instagram handle, the string of algorithms and photos and captions that tell the story of you on instagram will then be deciphered by that AI and run on those many screens, broadcasting, in a black mirroresque sort of way, your digital self.
