Life Smartphone: a commentary on smartphone dependence

"Min Alxe, a student at the China Central Academy of Fine Arts, created 'Life Smartphone,' a darkly funny commentary on our culture's smartphone dependence. It shows different characters moving through the world and dying gruesome deaths while not paying attention to what's around them."

(Max Plenke, 08 May 2015)
