"OPEN YOUR EYES" PROJECT

“Open Your Eyes” is a jewelry project who wants to bring awareness to social media and how it affects us. How does it influence us, and how do you influence others? We´re not meant to be shallow, it makes us disconnected and lonely.

Instagram is the worst social media network for mental health and wellbeing, While the photo-based platform got points for self-expression and self-identity, it was also associated with high levels of anxiety, depression, bullying and FOMO, or the “fear of missing out.”

Out of five social networks included in the survey, YouTube received the highest marks for health and wellbeing and was the only site that received a net positive score by respondents. Twitter came in second, followed by Facebook and then Snapchat—with Instagram bringing up the rear.

Previous studies have suggested that young people who spend more than two hours a day on social networking sites are more likely to report psychological distress. “Seeing friends constantly on holiday or enjoying nights out can make young people feel like they are missing out while others enjoy life,” the #StatusOfMind report states. “These feelings can promote a ‘compare and despair’ attitude.”

ART FOR ALL

Om Art for All Peter Claesson og kona Sharon står bak organisasjonen Art for All in the World, som ble startet i Equador på 1990-tallet. De ønsket å gjøre hverdagen enklere for barn som satt i fengsel, og malte veggene i alle regnbuens farger sammen med ungene. Siden har de tatt med seg ideen ut i gater verden rundt. Organisasjonen engasjerer lokale krefter til å male med seg, for å skape identitet og glede.
