The idea for this work stemmed from research I carried out for a school project on the impact of social media on our mental health. Due to this I realised how detrimental my habits had become. I was shocked at how many young people were affected by mental health issues and how social media contributes to this. Having discovered the tricks businesses use (e.g. the continual scroll) to keep us engaged online I wanted to explore the feeling of helplessness and the lack of control in which I felt at the time. I hope my art will make others think about how their use of technology impacts their wellbeing.
