Cyber-hacking is remote crime, because it is both remote in its practice and location. Arguably the most dangerous of the lot.
Sketch 1 (1,500 characters)
My final draft is intended to take the topic of hacking out of the abstract facade. The idea of hacking and cybersecurity is abstract and misrepresented as it is, there is a need to dumb it down and allude to the truth - Hacking is remote meaning that the act doesn't require a concrete location - Scary how they could quite literally be everywhere from anywhere.
Please make use of the concept document I have attached for a more in-depth summary.
What have you learned through this sketching process? (1,000 characters)
I have learnt that ideas and inspiration can come from anywhere and while you build the idea, more solutions become apparent. You can never really say a craft is finished, there will always be an extra step to make it better.
Tell us more about you. (1,000 characters)
My name is Ray, I am a proud South African creator that has/will always had/have a passion for visuals (eye candy). I believe that an image that is powerful enough can engage change through shifting peoples perspectives. If you show them a representation of something in a way that they never thought of, they may never think of the subject in the same light ever again. I believe that concept is the best way for sharing ideas because we are visual learners and images stick with us far longer than words. It's extremely difficult to share an idea directly from your head, if you can draft a visual then less of your idea is up to interpretation from the other party. Concept images get everyone on the same page quicker.
Why are you participating in this Challenge? (750 characters)
I find it scary how technophobic and oblivious society really is, The power of hacking exploits our disillusion and I want to change that. I work, especially often, with technology and I believe that the relationship between man and machine should progress the human race and not hinder it. It's shocking how the tool that can catapult us into the future may very easily become a tool of regression. Most of all, i believe that our privacy is the one thing that should be forever upheld and breach-free.
Coming Soon ;)
