An Artist’s Depiction to Show How Smartphone Addiction and Technology Is Taking over Our Lives
John Julien is a French illustrator who wows people with his illustrations on life and reality. His illustrations here are taking a jibe at the way humans are enslaved to technology. Every image you see here is like harsh truth how technology has made the world smaller for an individual engrossed in his own world rather than a social one. Humans have become obsessed with the Smartphone so take a look at 15 images of smart phone addiction.
1 Weirdo on the subway
Who’s the real weirdo? The obsession with Smartphones has gone to such an extent that in today’s world what’s abnormal is actually very normal and those not addicted are the weirdoes. What a paradox.
2 Apple watch
This shows how much we are slaves to our cellphones that even when it is charging we can’t let it go and that’s the time we should be charging ourselves too. Put down your cell when it’s charging.
In today’s world, a spot on the beach with total liberation means no technology. Before it may have read no animals or playing or cycles etc but today the real obstructions that imprison us are social media.
4 Taking pictures
Taking pictures earlier meant people taking photos of each other, today because of the selfie people would constantly rather see themselves instead on screen in a weird narcissistic way.
It’s weird how the evolution of technology boasted at one time of putting the cell phone into the palms of our hand and from reading a large paper we went to reading a small screen but with today’s tablets we are back to the same size but on an electronic medium so what’s really great about that.
