Past Sharing presents how online social platforms play a crucial role in the mental wellbeing of young people. Through a collective Instagram account, content has been created, tagged and commented on anonymously.

The dual screen layout presents an edit of the account; the content on one monitor is controlled by searching social media for the hashtags generated though the project, which are displayed on the second monitor.
