Let’s play a game: try to remember when was the last time you spent a whole week without being exposed to some sort of screen, without having a little heart attack everytime your phone goes “low battery” or the last time you went to bed without your eyes feeling like old prunes. Yep, it was a long time ago. It might have never happened, even. Our generation has been born with an electronic device under our arms; TV, tamagotchi, computers or phones have always been our centre of attention. Our grandparents, all full of good thoughts, encouraged us to go out to the park, as if we were going to abandon our level 54 Pikachu to play with the resin of a pine.
Kamil Kotarba‘s ghost arm images show us the daunting way of how we’ve stopped relating to the world, turning into junkies that can only look around with a Valencia filter. A necessary reality dose.
