As our technology continues to advance and develop beyond our imagination, smartphone addiction is becoming an increasing real phenomena. However, as we become more dependent on technology and the screens in their hands, we risk gradually alienating ourselves from the richness, depth, and loveliness of life.

This darkly humorous animation suggests it may be time we stopped staring at our phone screens.
