My Response to Today's Google Logo

By now, you likely saw today's google logo pictured above. It was to celebrate the 57th anniversary of the first ever bar code. Rather than typing a long response as to how this logo made me feel, I'm posting a simple piece of artwork I made a while back.

I'm still wondering:


Is society advancing as a result of technological growth, or have we become prisoners, tethered to machines that lead us through a formulated network of virtual life?
