Social Commentary

Fellow VCC'er Shannon Shackelford is part of our arts community. I asked her for permission to post this photograph on my blog. I found it interesting on several levels - any thoughts?

To see more of her stuff check out www.shannonangel.com or her Flickr page.

i find this photo fascinating on so many levels. we are a society so addicted to ourselves and our gadgets...this just happens to be most popular right now. i just wonder how long it will be before we're strung out, broke, and completely unable to feed our addiction. what atrocities might we commit then?

It always touches me strangely to see the imagery/symbolism of main-lining used to make a point. I used to be a junkie. Now I'm a Christian, sober mom with a teenage son who loves his iPhone. While I think I get the point the artist is making, somehow the juxtaposition is startling.
