Modern Addiction

Modern Addiction is an experience examining the current state of socially accepted addiction, with a display of interactive posters designed by Justin Dusett. The interactive posters that compile the exhibit are displayed with an individual QR code for each piece. When scanned, the QR code will direct the viewer to a website. That website will have a digital version of the poster, and upon scrolling; the site will reveal facts about the issues that the show is discussing.

We are all addicted to something. This has been a constant and evident truth in our culture since its inception. Regardless of era, generation, race, location, etcetera; we all have addictions 

Alcohol, prescription drugs, caffeine, tobacco, over the counter medication.

That is what we think of when we think of addiction. Certain brands come to mind and similar solutions are suggested. 

Go to AA. Lock the cabinets. Drink less coffee.

The modern addiction is a modem addiction. It is the only addiction that is socially accepted and embraced. 8 years old or 18 years old; 15 years old or 50 years old. We get a buzz from the buzz in our pocket. We are detached from our current state of being to be engulfed by an endless stream of apps, texts from "friends", RSS feeds and videos.

This is not healthy.
