Way Out is a short animated film by Yukai Du which explores the figurative effects of staring at a smartphone all day. I think the idea of this can be broadened to any device computer related, not just smartphones. It’s not a new idea, but all the electronic means of being social is actually deteriorating actually being social. With every new device and app people dive into and let consume themselves a little bit more of their humanity is lost. I could just be speaking of myself, but I feel comfortable painting with a broad brush on this one, it’s a lot less lonely.
