Television vs. Nature

Television vs Nature

I am starting to collage pattern and texture into my illustration series entitled, Figments of Childhood. This image is talking about the impact of television on youth since the mid eighties through today. I am scared that children will not be as in touch with the innocence of nature and that they are getting trapped in this technological world that is encroaching on the imaginative experiences that surround them when they let their mind come to life. My biggest fear is a generation of kids that constantly need to be entertained by objects and things, for the mothers that use the T.V. as the “babysitter.” It is innate that we should be youthful and imaginative, that is when moments are actually conscious.
