Sketch 1 (1,500 characters)

Same Technique I use in my artwork name Pandora. to create a warm analog feeling of paper cut-out with texture, but this time i want to express a more collage style of subtle digital feeling. I want to tackle cyber security on how will it relate to people. I want to bring awareness that even though we are in the age of technology and digitalized world, we are still playing the same fundamental of personal privacy and security of our own belongings. I want to depict on the artwork that cyber security isnt only about computer and coding that a normal person coudnt relate with. but rather its everything that we are connected with. and we have the power to contain and silence these information.

What have you learned through this sketching process? (1,000 characters)

What i've learned is that we can tell a complex and hard topic using soft and simple elements. I realize that even though we are tackling a very complex topic in which involve digital age and a lot of development, we are still implementing the basic foundation of human survival.

I like the symbolism in the Sketch a great deal. A similar eye appears on the U.S. dollar, which may be an unintended connection, but it works for me.

As a fellow entrant, I invite you to visit my submission and let me know what you think.

Best of luck.

I like this addition in this sktch Mai Arollado , though I feel like the paper texture was more prominent and interesting in your other sketch. What do you think?

@Dima Boulad, I have the same feeling. its just this time i just want to play with more interesting representation and metaphor. i would like to play around more couple of ideas later.
