My work explores the ever-changing nature of technology and its detrimental effects on the mind, body and spirit. The overwhelming convenience of the internet is a serious issue, putting pressure on our society to keep up with social media and gradually degrading physical intimacy between people. This applies to me especially, as my role as a teenager prompts me to engage with people online more and more often, effectively cutting me off from real-life interaction. Hence my own addiction to technology has led to the creation of this artwork.
