Technological phagocytosis


If clickbait has a dark future, it has to be a cyberpunk one. With neon adds everywhere and a fog that swallow everything and give it a good blade runner looking style !

I had a lot of fun with the theme of this contest : "futur clickbait". Sometimes theme in contest don't give me a lot of idea but there I had way too many of them.
But this is the one I finally ended going with : a futuristic Paris where nothing escaped the globalized attention monopolizing that is sometime the internet.
I was quite inspired by some of the fake news I heard about where Paris was described as undergoing a "civil war" and described nuclear incidents that didn't exist. When you see (fake) news describing the place you are living in as a war zone it feels weird. I don't know if it was clickbait or if it had another goal but still this is what I think of now when I hear about fake news.

There is the link to the development of the piece (a gif of the process) : https://www.newgrounds.com/art/view/istrandar/making-gif-technological-phagocytosis

I hope you enjoy the art, have a nice day !
