(1st Place – Graphic Design)
School: Palmer High School
This piece is set in a busy city and gives a visual marker for the focus of all of the people’s attention. The lack of eye contact and positioning away from the viewer makes them feel ignored and, in turn, inclined to return to their own devices. I was influenced by my own experiences traveling in cities, and street artists like “iHeart” who have also criticized society by exaggerating their generation’s social issues through art.
