(ANONHQ) Igor Morski, a Polish graphic designer, illustrator and set designer, is a well-known artist for exploring the not so subtle horrors of modern society through his controversial illustrations. In the below thought-provoking photo series System Failure, he makes you think: Is the earth a scary place, or have we become too dangerous for the planet? Is the technology bringing us closer or have we become too ‘smart’; addictive and therefore distinct from each other? Are we actually living our dreams, or are we killing ourselves trying to meet other people’s expectations? Are we succumbing to outer beauty and fads than our inner calling and beliefs? Are we emotionally connected, or are today’s relationships a lie? Are we being humans, or busy being demons…?

Bored Panda observes:

“They might make you uncomfortable, or create that funny feeling in the pit of your stomach, but I would argue that this is probably a good thing, that it suggests the images resonate on a deeper level. Art is supposed to evoke something within us. Morski’s creative expression outlines concepts and ideas in our modern society that perhaps we are not privy to because we’re just ‘so in it’.”

The beauty of these photos is that they are open for interpretation. You can interpret them the way you want, and they will reflect yourtruth. Here’s our interpretation …

society

Human body or a junkyard?

society

What you are addicted to, kills you in the end.

society

When the society decides what SHOULD you be when you grow up… and imprisons your body, mind and soul.

society

Being a girl in a boy’s world.

society

Puppets of our own choices.

society

We are the environment: we can either preserve it or destroy it … the power is within us.

society

The concrete jungle we call our home: unattractive, harsh, grey and unsafe.

society

Prisoner of our thoughts.

society

When emotions die and technology takes over.

society

We have far too much control over the world – and we don’t quite know what to do with it.

society

It’s a mad, mad, mad, mad, world … and it needs to cool down.

society

How technology permeates, and invades …

society

Becoming one with nature.

society

Women are not equal to men; they are superior. But does it count?

society

We are made of earth. When we die we will return to the earth. But, in the meantime, life is a beautiful dance.

society

Time moves faster … we can’t outdo it.

society

An incredibly confused brain … working 24/7, yet going nowhere.

society

Throwing her days away thinking one day she will throw her weight away … [Currently, 80% ofwomen in the US are dissatisfied with their appearance].

society

Who is burning who?

society

When families fake and break … children suffer.
