Final Internet Art Proposal
Partners: Ellen and Jaime
April 18, 2018

As we were discussing technology and its impacts on society, we started to delve further into this topic on how it’s made an impact globally. We thought about how maybe technology could have saved lives and we started to think of the many global issues around the world today. We began to think of the Syrian refugee crisis as well as North Korean refugees and how technology, specifically smartphones could have made a significant impact on the lives of those who have successfully escaped. For this project, we decided to make a video and show from the perspective of a North Korean refugee but more specifically on how his/her smartphone would maybe look like if they were in possession of one as we utilize and show through apps such as whatsapp, maps GPS, compass, weather, etc.. We are still deciding how we would make this video and website interactive.
