In My Room episode 5: privacy and isolation

You know how your bedroom is so much more than a bedroom? Think about it: in addition to being a place to sleep, it's also a sacred space, an oasis from the rest of the world, an office, a studio, a home gym—you name it. To wit: welcome to In My Room, a new bi-weekly series in which one of our favorite digital artists, Molly Soda, dissects various aspects of teen bedroom culture. 

This week, we're delighted to present episode 5 of In My Room, which is all about that struggle that pretty much defines the experience of being a teenager: the tension between privacy and isolation. It's hard not to feel isolated when you're in high schoolyou're old enough to start thinking for yourself, but you're still being treated like a kid. Nobody understands you, and, honestly, it doesn't even seem like they're trying very hard. And when your bedroom offers your only chance at privacy from a world that just doesn't get you, well, is it any wonder that you'll fight tooth and nail to protect that sanctuary?
