Reflective of the digital age of falsified information through the media and Internet, this piece is inspired by Plato’s Allegory of the Cave. Similarly to Plato’s prisoners, who are unable to see beyond the shadows passing in front of their faces, modern humans do not tear their eyes away from the screens, manipulated reports and captivating advertisements given to them.
