Warning: Reality Breach

This artwork stems from my observation of young people who are addicted to their phones and influenced negatively by social media. As a ‘Generation Z’, I have grown up immersed in technology and at times it feels inescapable and overwhelming. I worry that as we continue to evolve with technology, our perception of what is right and wrong will lead to a robotic world where we completely disconnect from reality. My female figure dangles precariously over the ledge of a skyscraper, blinded by her dripping phone, oblivious to the threat due to her addiction. My message is to stop listening to negative influences and start creating a healthy environment on your social media feeds… or just put down your phone.
