Zilla van den Born is not mythomaniac or insane. His goal was simply to make a study on social media. She spent her 42 days of "vacation" by editing pictures of her on Photoshop to make his trip.
She has also changed her room to pretend to her parents that she was in Thailand during their Skype meetings.
In an interview, she said: "I did it to show people that we filter and handle what we show on social media – we create an ideal online world in which reality can no longer respond. ''
"My goal was to prove how it is easy and common for people to distort reality. Everyone knows that the photos of the models are modified, but we often overlook the fact that we handle also the reality in our own lives."
