We seem to be ever increasingly more social with the proliferation of social website such as Facebook yet those interactions are always through the internet veil. Even gathering around the family tellie is a thing of the past, family members content to bathe in the glow of their own iPhone or laptop. And who hasn’t seen the couple sharing a coffee in a cafe more foccused on checking their text messages than conversing with each other.
This is a bit of an experiment and a work in progress, the image is a collage of many of my own various different stock images. I was looking for a run-down building which would illustrate the theme or feeling of isolation, especially in cities when we seem surrounded by people. I couldn’t find the building I had pictured in my mind so I decided to construct one of my own :)
