Hivemind by Caitlin Graham
This etching reflects upon the interconnectedness of humanity due to modern technology and the idea of the hivemind.
Oblivious to others around them, modern humanity often ignores actual human connection in favour of technological connection. However, there is still the underpinning biology of the human mind which keeps up connected as well. I have represented this concept visually through the everyday zebra crossing scene. The crossing people's shadows take the shape of bees and to further reinforce this idea of interconnectedness every character in the image is touching or overlapping another with either their bodies or shadows.
