Social Suicide

Be the hand you wished had helped you, the ears you wished had listened and the voice you wished had stood up for you.

Artist Statement

Studies and news reports show that there can be a direct link between suicide from cyber bullying. This work represents people who hang themselves because of cyber bullying. The phone represents the person committing suicide and that it happens via social media. The headphones act as a noose hanging from the ceiling. I believe that cyber bullying is a serious issue that needs to be resolved. Bullies think that if they aren’t saying it face-to-face, it won’t affect the person, but everyone has their breaking point no matter how you bully.
