“Crystal Pillars” is a video essay comprised of “real” social encounters Dullaart experienced through his Facebook life. As a voice actor recites a range of social media “sages” — from Mark Zuckerberg to Lil’ B to Dullaart himself — the resulting narrative takes viewers on a journey through personal experiences, corporate promotion, and an apocalyptic perception of the contemporary social landscape. For Dullaart, social network citizens readily give up their privacy in return for potential contacts, as though these were tangible and exchangeable commodities. In this way, Dullaart points out that the idea that we control our identities and how we are perceived online is merely an illusion.
