Smartphone botanic. Of course about social media. 2018.
The title of my illustration is “Smartphone Botanics”: walking down the streets, sitting in the subways, waiting for the bus, waiting for the dentist, waiting to reach a destination. Waiting in general is an empty space between our lives, it became natural for people to fill in this time by scrolling their phones. In my idea of future, nature will grow through this empty space, plunging its roots deep in digital soil. Like roots does with sidewalk’s cement, nature will overcome the inconsistence of technology, the resilience of plants and flowers will eventually grow from pixel.
