Behind the Screen explores the intimate interplay between technology and our wellbeing, specifically placing a focus on the intergenerational impact of our daily interaction with screens, and looking at the physical, psychological and social element of this impact. I have highlighted this issue through studying three different representative age groups, and showcasing how screens can be used in both a positive and negative manner. My wish is that the viewer interacting with my pieces will start to consider their moral and ethical responsibilities in relation to technology.
