What person do we become when we interact with another through text messaging? Through video? Is an “in-person” interaction indicative of our true selves? Is it the audacious voice emboldened behind our screens? Or are these disparate selves’ halves of a whole?
Set in the year 2020, two millennials meet. Digital Divergence focuses on a single relationship - a romantic one, an instant attraction between two people – that diverges into three mediums. Each divergence showcases the butterfly effect of the small choices we make and how the patterns of our lives are set by a single decision; in this case, a single decision that informs our behaviour towards someone we are building an intimate and vulnerable connection with.
