Members of our current society are slowly isolating themselves through the convenience of technology, the Internet and social media. As a result of this isolation, virtual barriers are being built. This piece aims to capture the feeling these barriers create in our world. The plastic bags that insulate each image represent those barriers, both virtual and physical, that separate us from the content we’re viewing. These barriers end up affecting our worldview so much that what we’re seeing actually changes, which is why the world is seen as inverted by the viewer.

This installation is part of an ongoing piece by the artist, which can be found on Instagram under the handle '@drmaxwelljr'.
