Facebook

 

Explanation:

This piece represents a huge computer screen inside which there are multiple springs connecting one
with the other. The metal springs are tightly connected and they represent people and businesses.
The artwork aims to show how all these elements are connected inside this network of springs in a
similar way people are connected through facebook’s net. The connection inside the network is so
tight and strong making it impossible for people to escape once they get addicted to this network, the
same way springs are connected tightly and removing them is the same difficult.

 

Few words:

This piece was inspired by the well-known social media network and aims to represent the way Facebook can connect everything and everyone.

A computer screen through which you connect to everyone and you get so involved that it might be impossible to escape.
