Monitor is an exhibition that explores the relationship between ourselves and technology.


The works will seek to investigate the impact technology has on our everyday lives; how it can aid us to live a more efficient, convenient life, and conversely affect our mental and physical health. We begin to rely on our devices, often to function. Our society is dominated by technological advancements; technology is everywhere from our phones to the cars we drive – they makes our lives easier and more comfortable, but what is the cost? Are we losing an fundamental part of what makes us human as our decision making is being influenced by and often replaced by machines?

Social media has become an integral part of our lives. It is a tool, a means to stay in contact with friends, a forum in which we share aspects of our everyday lives. Human interaction is supplemented by social media – but is it some way being replaced? Adverts are tailored towards our spending habits, our actions online recorded and monitored. Where our lives were once private, databases now exist. Scrolling social media has become a normal daily action that ironically enables us to spend more time monitoring other people’s lives than living our own.

Is our virtual reality a utopia or dystopia?
