Have you ever wondered how someone from the past would perceive the technology we have available in the 21st century? Items like smartphones and tablets are so commonplace, that it’s really interesting to see them in a different light.
Artist Kristin Jones has merged images of children using modern technology, smartphones and social media – with an illustration style inspired by 1950s sci-fi and horror. In the images the children look almost alien, staring mesmerized by screens – creating an eerie and creepy effect. Some show their faces distorting and melted, making the art series even more chilling.
