The Doggy Bag is a satirical, unrealistic but effective solution to smartphone and social media addiction — by fulfilling the needs of the addict, distracting them from negative thoughts that lead to social media use and impeding their use of social media platforms, it creates a catalyst for thought. The project was intended to bring attention to the issue of smartphone and social media addiction, whilst also being informative on how it happens, why it’s bad, and through such an outrageous “solution”, the intended idea is that all it takes is a little bit of willpower to counteract the addiction.
