Item Description

Caret Down Primary

This project begins with observing the digital device addiction phenomenon in the city. People are always using their smartphones and become obsessed with the digital media. The world behind the display screen seems to be more authentic than the physical world, everything is there – information, social life, entertainment… Our dependence and obsession with the digital space is a norm, it is not regarded as abnormal nor disordered.

This work is about the normalization of disordered acts in the society, using the common digital media dependence phenomenon as an analogy to investigate the visual representation of the concept.

By borrowing the popular gesture of the society, and manipulating it with exaggeration to create a dramatize outcome, I intend to unveil the disordered digitalized life and question the norm of the society. Believing the society and humanity inter-transform each other, my work endeavors to investigate the social phenomenon and its relation to humanity, and to arouse discussion about the issue.
