(Honorable Mention – Mixed Media)
School: Joe Redington Sr Jr/Sr High School
I came across an article that talked about the downsides to having Internet and Social Media, and I felt that it really spoke to me. People now a day are on their phones way too much, it consumes them and makes it so they don’t have as much human contact as they once did. The article went into detail with all of the statistics on suicide rates and the lack of human contact in today’s society.
To show that phones are now controlling people’s lives, I started the piece with a phone. The phone is a simple phone with six highly used apps. Coming out of the phone is a hand in the shape of a gun. This represents how the phone has a lot of mean people (bullies) telling you what to do, and what not to do. On the end of the hand (gun) there are puppet strings which are attached to a heart. This is representing that your hands do harm to your body, and when you have a mean source telling you mean things, it can have a major impact on someone’s life, and can even take their life. The background is a grey scale, that shows the phone is the dark thing, and your heart is an innocent thing
