Between Sydney's streets

About

Aussie Mood wants to represent the contrast of the people that live in the city and their behaviour. The incredible concentration of people use a smartphone in Sydney is something unimaginable.


Alike many cities of the world, also Sydney has its shades, contrast and colours. Sydney is a particular city, and it's running very fast as like as its change every day. What about the people that live and work every day inside the city? Is it such a sad sign that they do not care what is happening around them. Indeed, they do not pay attention, are just only concentrated on their lives into the digital era. As ghosts, they are walking on the road. The rest does not exist.

Aussie Mood. Wants to represent the contrast of the people that live in the city and their behaviour. The incredible concentration of people use a smartphone in Sydney is something unimaginable.

Spent a couple of months, to study and to observe them during their daily life, up and down on Sydney's streets and notice, how many times people pass with its smartphone, in his or her hand, I thought. How is disconcerting all of it? The technology, it should help us; instead, it can transform a person into a kind of ghost, is shocking. Is like to kill someone so slowly.
