Sweet Escapism

So this weekend I have been pondering escapism and the human need for pleasure. Sometimes these pleasures or forms of escapism can turn into addictions and this is something I have been exploring after recently quitting smoking and drinking and becoming aware of other things that could replace the cravings previously felt for nicotine and alcohol. Luckily I have only developed a sweet tooth rather than a crack cocaine habit! Still, this highlights the human condition and our need to escape the pain of reality and internal struggles in exchange for external pleasures.

I have used my new found sweet tooth to create some ironic and satirical photo’s to represent addiction, and the struggles we all face as conscious pleasure seeking human beings.
