The use of technology integrated into our lives, has began to increase rapidly in the past few years. Meaning screens in many forms, have become an integral part of everyday life. This has had a massive change in the way we as a species express our emotions, in different scenarios. As the amount of time we spend staring at screens, whether that be mobiles or computers has increased. The project is an observation of the emotions expressed while staring at computer screens, while accessing the internet. Each individual recorded themselves for around 30/40 minutes while using different parts of the internet, whether that be social networking, youtube, etc. I wanted to show how emotionally muted we have become, since the rapid increase of screens being used throughout our daily lives, and the need to interact with people has decreased.
