Absorbed by Light: sculptures about smartphone addiction by Karoline Hinz and Gali May Lucas

As a warning for smartphone addiction or their excessive use, German artist Karoline Hinz, with the collaboration of Gali May Lucas, has created this clever installation and urban intervention displayed in front of the Hermitage Museum, during the Amsterdam Light Festival, 2019.

Three figures sit next to each other on a bench, displaying the typical characteristics of smart-phone users: their heads are bent, fingers typing and swiping, and their faces lit up by their phone screens. While their bodies are physically present, their minds are elsewhere.
