Fake Hug / communication design

Fake Hug
Fake Hug

People nowadays tend to rely on technology to communicate. They focus on their own smartphones even meeting face-to-face. They are busy connecting with those on Internet instead of the one present next to them. The phenomenon is similar to hugging back to back. Even bodies are stuck together but what inside their mind are completely different. Therefore we use shielded and wary cold-blooded animals to symbolize the degeneration of emotions of human beings.
