I made this video in 2011 for a school assignment called “fact and fiction”. I interpreted this theme on social level in the real life vs the digital world we’re living in nowadays.
Everything around us is based on communication. People are attached to there smartphones and computer screens to stay in contact with people all over the world. But in the mean time they don’t look up if they pass someone on street or even never say a word to their neighbour.
I made this just right before the big smartphone boom. And if I look back on this project these days. It makes me shiver that it only gets worse.
and this is called progress…
