An art exhibit explores our increasing addiction to being plugged in.
Humans are addicted. We are addicted to so many things, but the addiction to our phones is perhaps the worst offender. It’s hard to even drive your car without glancing down at the buzzing little perpetrator. We subject ourselves to constant stimuli, without even knowing what this dependency bodes for the future. Artist Rachel Lee Hovnanian already feels the fatigue, which she investigates with a new art exhibition, Plastic Perfect, at Leila Heller Gallery in New York.
