Cheeky reality of social media revealed in 3D art series by Ben Fearnley

Social media continues to dominate our lives on a daily basis, even despite the growing concerns over privacy. Now, one New York-based artist and designer has created a series of witty 3D illustrations that show how we absurdly, and often childishly connect with one another on things like Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

The amusing pieces have been crafted by Ben Fearnley of design agency Vault49, who is fascinated by how social media influences human interaction, as we all hit the apps and sites every day.

"Each one of these platforms encourages a different kind of communication and the amount of time we spend on social media has skyrocketed," says Ben, "I challenged myself to create a visualisation of how I could represent each social platform's user interaction in the most simplistic way that people could relate to and find conceptually amusing at the same time."
