Just take a look around you the next time you use public transportation or go to a public place. The chances of seeing multiple individuals starring at their smartphones are quite high. There’s no denying that we have become prisoners to our devices. This 24/7 connection certainly has its benefits, but it has lead many of us to become wholly dependent on having constant access to our smartphone, computer, or tablet.
As part of a print campaign for Go Outside Magazine, Felipe Luchi illustrated our modern technology-dependent society by transforming popular devices such as the iPhone and the computer mouse as jailhouses. The artist does offer a glimmer of hope, however, as if you look carefully, you’ll notice that one prisoner has managed to escape in each photo.
