          On February 7th 2018 @Kyliejenner posted a photo to Instagram to announce the birth of her baby daughter. The image depicting her new-born baby Stormi, holding onto Kylie’s finger. The image quickly circulated online and in a matter of days became the most liked post on Instagram.
          Inspired by the essay Journey to the Center of Google Earth by Simon Sellars, This book explores the parallels between the ways we use traditional navigational tools and the way that we, as humans, look to celebrities as a way of navigating our own lives. Instagram has become one of the key tools used by celebrities to share their lives with the world. But the lives that they share have been meticulously constructed to paint a picture of a perfect, unattainable dream existence. An augmented reality built to gain followers and likes.
