banned hashtags of instagram
redefining words that confine us
The Banned Hashtags of Instagram project highlights omitted and censored hashtags within the social media platform and illustrates them visually and contextually as Instagram posts. In an attempt to redefine these seemingly taboo hashtags, each word is researched in the context of its history and usage in our vernacular and represented to challenge it's current censorship. The project underscores the importance and value of free speech in our society, culture and language.
