Nesting Peeps is book depicting a peep character residing in nests of recycled mass digital media. The book images contrast a loving bird, or peep, to a mess of mass media, opinions, arguments, and disrespectful redirect. The peeps and nests relationships focus on presenting the impact of mass digital media on how we engage with one another. Extreme amplifications of particular human social behaviors in a digital space reveal the power of visual imaging in America, and globally, to create divisions as well as broaden our perspectives. This essay further examines the contradictory content of the book Nesting Peeps, and contextualizes it within the contemporary art world.
