This project, titled Communication Breakdown, is a critical look into how society has been affected by the rise of mobile technology and social media addiction. I find it interesting that these devices, which were intended to bring people closer together, allow us to separate entirely from the immediate people around us. That we are able to connect with anyone in the world via our phones and becoming less and less able to socialise confidently with other people in person is a tragic irony which is becoming more common in society. These images are inspired by my own experiences of this unnatural modern isolation and are aimed at making people realise their own addictions and appreciate the people around them more.
