The state of the world today, is unignorable. With protests against police brutality sparking beyond America and into Europe, alongside climbing death tolls due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic – creator of popularized Netflix series titled ‘Black Mirror’, expressed his concern for our world’s overwhelming issues and his understanding of the sensitivity of each matter, stating, “at the moment, I don’t know what stomach there would be for stories about societies falling apart, so I’m not working away on any of those black mirror episodes”.
Dubbed an anthology series revolving around a group of individual’s personal lives to depict how technology has manipulated their behavior, the Black Mirror series is often set in a dystopian society – which as of late, looks a lot like our new reality.
With sightings of robots dogs patrolling parks in Singapore, and technological companies teaming to create tracing apps, the idea behind ‘Black Mirror’ has never felt so pervasively tangible.
As a result, Madrid-based creative agency, brother ad school has since taken the idea of living in a black mirror episode to new heights. Designing a-somewhat-interactive advertisement using mirrored surfaces at bus stops, Netflix’s season six of Black Mirror is officially live now, everywhere.
