David J. Grimshaw
The work aims to stimulate reflection and self-questioning about wellbeing in society. At some time in their lives many people experience feelings of being disconnected from family, friends, or life. For most, this sense of disconnection is transitory but for some it can mean a lifetime of anguish and mental ill health. Disconnection can be observed most easily in people who are addicted to their mobile phone or other item of technology. This work goes beyond the literal form of disconnection to explore the emotions experienced behind the metaphorical screen. The gaze is fixed, but what emotion is behind the screen? How do you react to the sense of other behind the screen? The choice is yours: 'connect or disconnect?'
