The chosen organization is the World Information Institute (WII) an independent cultural institution that aims to explore digital culture technologies and society, which aligns with my course major of Digital and Social Media.

This image aims to illustrate how the perspective of an individual is often jaded by the influences of old and new. This idea is illustrated through the glasses were one lens is clouded by social media (the new) and the other lands clouded by the year 1963 (the old) were both ultimately impact the vision of the individual.
This second image aims to illustrate the contrast of the digital native and the digital native, the young boy who is the digital native is ahead in life and the older man is shown as distorted and the vehicle missing because he will ultimately “struggle” to succeed.
