Social media addict or digital minimalist?
EYE CANDY by Jia Tolentino - this is the title of one of the articles in the April 29 issue of "The New Yorker" I read a few days ago, a very interesting article which I really recommend. Straight away, after I read it, I decided to give it a go and make an illustration. This is "my way", the way I see it. Where do you see yourself? Are you a digital minimalist trying to detox from the addiction of the noisy world of social media? Or are you stuck in a vortex of texting, scrolling, checking likes and comments, e-mailing, watching videos, podcasts, playing games... carrying your phone "as if it was an oxygen tank"? What would it be like to just do nothing? How would it be if you put your phone down? I think it would be easier to notice and appreciate the environment and people that are around us. Even appreciate the beautifulness of those very silly little things, like lying down with your feet up, "walking" in the sky chasing funny shaped clouds :-)
