Historical Masterpieces Updated To Reflect Our Modern Love Of Phones
A designer has inserted mobile devices into classic works of art to bring attention to our technology addictions
In an attempt to express his concern over the ubiquity of phone addiction, South Korean designer Kim Dong-kyu has inserted the ever-present mobile devices into classic works of art, including Leonardo da Vinci’s The Last Supper and Gustav Klimt’s The Kiss.
The alternate realities expressed in his creative project include Photoshopped versions of these classic works that incorporate phones and tablets into the composition. In the reimagined The Last Supper, for example, each apostle is accompanied by a device — from Beats by Dre headphones to Apple laptops.
